Bad news travels fast, but apparently not fast enough for the The Austin American-Statesman.

In what appears to be a striking coincidence, the newspaper published a glowing review on Sunday of the Cibolo Creek Ranch, the same ranch at which U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia died on Saturday. The piece, unfortunately, was titled in print: “At exclusive Big Bend resort, guests enjoy the high life.”

News broke on Saturday evening of Scalia’s death, reportedly from a heart attack at the age of 79.

The story’s author, Pam Leblanc, noted the timing on Twitter.

The review, caught by Texas Tribune reporter Aman Batheja, now contains an editor’s note, saying that the piece was published just before Scalia’s death:
