The Times continues to help: On its reimagined page A3, the New York Times continues to help. This morning's Here to Help feature (hard copy only) appears beneath this heading:

HOW TO SET UP A CHARCOAL GRILL
Today's Spotlight feature (ADDITIONAL REPORTAGE AND REPARTEE FROM OUR JOURNALISTS) does a masterful job misconstruing some informative work (by Nate Cohn) on last year's presidential polling.
Meanwhile, in the Of Interest feature, this is one of this morning's "NOTEWORTHY FACTS:"
In 2013, as part of its burgeoning space program, Iran claims to have launched a monkey more than 70 miles into the edge of space and retrieved it alive. The animal's name was Pishgam, Persian for "pioneer."In the report from which that noteworthy fact was drawn, we learn that Iran retrieved live worms from a trip into space before attempting the trick with Pishgam. Hollywood later reworked the idea, creating Snakes on a Plane.
The editors managed to work the word "bras" into this morning's "Quote of the Day." We'd say the reimagined page A3 is actualizing its motto:
You are the dumbest people on earthDo you wonder how we ever managed to reach our degraded cultural state? Go our and buy the hard-copy Times. Turn to A2 and A3.
