PW‘s CAST-away

Further thoughts on Sara Nelson, via an anonymous reader:

The PW titles its review section its “Forecast” section would seem to suggest that these are meant to come out before publication. But the NYT and WSJ have regularly beaten them to the punch (see Janet Maslin’s review of Peter Lefcourt’s new book last week, which predates PW’s review.) Given that, perhaps they should change the name to “Post-Forecast.”
