SOLVED!: What’s Wrong with this Picture?

I intended to post the answer to my question by last Tuesday.  Unfortunately, the unexpected death of a wonderful person I know last weekend short-circuited the writing portion of my brain for a few days.  I may later write about her, here,  in a separate article. But for now, back to the daily grind…

 

Ok, lettuce solve the question I presented here at What’s Wrong with this Picture?  The problem was contained in a Doonesbury comic strip below.  The only hint was that those with a current San Gabriel Valley or Pasadena, California background would find it easier to spot the problem or “solution”.

As I expected, I stumped everyone. Frankly, with this problem I’m not surprised: the subject covered journalism and specifically referred to a reporter spelled in the strip as “Geraldo.” 

Without further delay here is the problem with the above comic: the reporters name is misspelled as “Geraldo”. And, frankly, this comic probably pronounces it as “Heraldo” which is probably an improvement on the “correct” Geraldo.  That’s common & I don’t mind that.  It’s not a very common name.  Some may even find it difficult to pronounce it on the first try.

However, anyone who reads the newspaper in the San Gabriel Valley/Pasadena area would know the the correct spelling is ‘GIRARDOT.”   I’m not a name dropper, but as in Frank (or, Francis) GIRARDOT, the author/renaissance man/writer/crime fighting editor/reporter, and someone whose writings are followed by anyone from cops to politicians to even a Rockefeller, at our Pasadena Star News newspaper!  He’s been at this since at least last century so he must know what he’s doing.

My friends I don’t always have time to read a newspaper, but when I do, it’s Frank Girardot’s Pasadena Star News. And now you know, the rest of the story. Just some of Cafe Pasadena’s Believe It or Not!
