One from Mike and one from Zeke.

Mike reads the newspapers, I don't (except the one I work for, the always stellar and error-free North Coast Journal). This one, as far as I can tell, is actually the Times-Standard's fault. It looks to me like an ad built in-house, and well, spell check just wouldn't catch it.

How many of us actually look at street signs when we're not lost? Zeke does. This upstanding citizen is out proofreading in the city of Eureka, so look out! Yes, folks, these signs are on the same block.

Maybe we should "educte" adults too.

From the July 2, 2008 Times-Standard (a.k.a. Sub-Standard). If it weren't for the wire services, the Times-Standard would be 4 pages at the most. This little opinion piece came from the Contra Costa Times... who knows if the Times-Standard reset the title or if it came from the Contra Costa Times that way. Either way, people really should take the time to look at things before they go to print. Ugh.
