The error of our ways

I missed this article from writing coach Paula LaRocque when it came out a couple of weeks ago.

The piece is a compendium of mistakes that might make you laugh.

A couple of examples: A CNN headline saying Greenspan had an enlarged prostitute, a notice that "an Italian sinner will be served at 5:30 p.m. at the Essex Center United Methodist Church," a steakhouse serving pan-fried children.

She also has a few corrections that need correcting, like this one:
"We referred to the chairman of Chrysler Corporation as Lee Iacoocoo. His real name is Lee Iacacca. The Gazette regrets the error."
Read this, feel better about the mistakes you catch, and have a stress-free day.
