Ever worry about your heart?

If so, you might be interested in the University of Maryland Medical Center’s ad on page 1 of Sunday’s Washington Post Magazine – especially if your heart is in the right side of your chest, rather than the traditional left side.

That right side is where the ad shows the heart surgeon marking the imminent cut.  Hope the malpractice insurance is up-to- date.

Not clear if the Medical Center, its ad agency, or the WP’s ad or production folks were responsible for what surely is a reversed photograph.
