"Lorem Ipsum" article on AOL reports Chrysler design competition

"Lorem Ipsum" is placeholder Latin text used to budget space for an article to be published.  It's been used in print publishing for decades, and the practice has made its way onto the Web.

Unfortunately, sometimes people publish the Lorem text instead of the actual article.  This could be because a writer or editor pushes the wrong button before the article is ready, or maybe a content management system burps during the editorial process.

This morning an AOL Auto article promised to tell about a competition for a new logo for Chrysler.  Instead we got the Latin filler text.

Later, it got better.
