Have people became lazy?
I am here reading my policy studies book, and came across a flow chart. Well, let me just say I am really surprised that it made it into the textbook how it was printed. Upon looking at it, you can tell that somebody just threw it together. I almost want to say carelessly threw it together, but that wouldn’t be right. After looking at it, I noticed that where the lines come together to make a 90 degree angle, the lines do not match up. Either they overlap a hair or don’t connect by about that much. You know when you do a drawing in Microsoft Word, you cannot always have the lines meet up precisely. I don’t know if I should be criticizing this so much because this book was written by a well known person in the public policy arena, and the people that the book is aimed towards is undergraduate students who are learning public policy for the first time, and are hoping to be lawyers and such.
None of the students that I have seen aren’t as technically savvy as I am, so they probably wouldn’t even notice such a small detail like this. I guess I am a little shocked that the editor and/or publisher did not catch this small error, and have somebody quickly fix the flow chart up. I guess the information is more important than the layout.
