[print] It's Always February in Lake Charles, Louisiana

Circulating on Facebook right now, courtesy of the auspices of one Lelan J. LaBorde, is this following picture:

There is a newspaper in Lake Charles, the Lake Charles American Press, and, apparently, at least one press run of the paper of March 1st, 2016 cheerfully wished Lake Charlesians good morning on a happy Tuesday, February 30th.

Truthfully, the jury's still out on this one. It's too early to say for sure if it's been 'shopped; after all, despite getting to just the edge of virality on Facebook it still hasn't broke through in the news or in trending topics there. As a matter of fact, the comment thread itself has a split of opinion, with more than one reader posting versions of the American Press's front page that say both Feb. 30 and March 1st. The suspect pictures don't seem to have been 'shopped, or if they are … we have a true pro on the job.

Check it out yourself. Here's the FB post: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1263148297034687&set=gm.480900548774338

In the meantime we wish everyone in Lake Charles, LA a happy Wednesday, Feb 31st.
