Credit where credit is due

SR page designer Ralph Walter comes up with a lot of good ideas for which he does not get any public credit.

This injustice was mentioned to him the other day. And he responded by noting that flying under the radar also allows him to escape public blame when something doesn't go well.

I thought of that a little bit ago when a reader called features editor Carolyn Lamberson to complain about a photo of Adrienne Barbeau that ran with today's Slice.

I assume Ralph chose the photo. But the caller wouldn't know that. She probably thinks Carolyn or I selected it.

So maybe there are worse things than a little anonymity.

Of course, Ralph is actually quite celebrated in certain circles. But I'm afraid a full account of that would be offensive to some readers. So let's move on.
