Today I have been assaulted by poor spelling.
I've come to learn to live with this. The fact is that most people can't spell, or don't give a shit about checking, so you end up with ignorance that spreads like rancid icing over a freshly-baked cake.
But when it comes from supposedly reputable sources, I get crazy.
From today's NY Times Opinion Page – the Editorial Opinion of the Newspaper of Record:
I saw this in print. I was sad all over again to see nobody fixed it for the Web page.
Then, today I received some entries for a contest in which I am a judge. The letter accompanying them used "currier" instead of "courier."
Who uses "currier" for anything except to go with "& Ives"?
The Society of Professional Journalists.
And now, off to flay myself.
