Proofreading - a dying art





Subject: Proofreading - a dying art

Believe me when I say I know how this is. And I have made some stupid statements my self. A friend of mine sent these to me this morning and I thought you might like to read them.

This one I caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and called the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this.
It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!!
They put in a correction the next day. I just couldn't help but send this along. Too funny.
