Gr-r-r-r-r-r-r-r-rr!!!! This Irritates Me!

In today's local paper, there was a book review.  Actually, there were several, but only one that bothered me.The review was of a book named "The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time" and written by Jeff Deck and Benjamin D. Herson. 

Apparently, these two guys dislike typos - and other mistakes - as much as I do.  So, what irritated me?  It was the headline in the newspaper: "Author tries to correct nation's misstakes."  Uh, that should be "mistakes" instead of "misstakes."  How ironic that there was something wrong in the headline about this particular book.

How embarrassing for a newspaper, and totally unforgiveable.

Wow! That headline is ironic!

(Sherry! I am supposed to be out the door heading for work! But wanted to say hi...Weds is my next day off, so I will be back to catch up on more reading! Miss ya! It has been sooo long....I barely manage to post one post a week and reply to those that have left comments...this is nothing new though!)

Blessings & Aloha!
Thoughts and prayers to you dear friend regarding your brother Rod. I glanced down to your previous post of the photo of all of you wearing his Aloha shirts, but was not able to read more.

I agree, but it's almost too perfect. I wonder if they did it intentionally.

Is it the Newsless Courier? No wonder. So many errors and a read through in 30 seconds.
