you can take the editor out of the office...
...but you can't take the office out of the editor. This morning after my apheresis appointment, I glanced at the local paper while drinking my orange juice in the canteen, and immediately spotted an egregious typo on a front-page story:
President Bush is coming to Indianapolis next week as part of a three-state campaign to win support for his embattled tax-cut package.
Bush will arrive in Indianapolis on Monday night and speak to two groups of Hoosiers on Tuesday morning at the Indiana State Fairgrounds.
One will be a private meeting with a small sgroup of senior citizens. The second will be with several thousand Hoosiers in the Pepsi Coliseum. The White House declined to release further details on who will attend. [emphasis added]
I realize that I have no room whatever to throw stones about typos, but this one -- in the lead story in a major metropolitan newspaper -- is rather embarassing, isn't it?
