MUSINGS ON LIFE, ART, MARKETING AND POP CULTURE FROM AURORA, ILLINOIS
Took me awhile, lol, to find the error! I haven't changed my driver's licence address as yet. Keep meaning to, lol!
Well, I was nervous this morning but scored a 100%. The folks were nice, efficient and I was in and out within an hour with license and tags.
congratulations. I didn't catcht the error until you pointed it out.
Marsha, I love to proofread but I'm sure you will find I make lots of mistakes too. There is an old saying regarding journalists: Doctors bury their mistakes, lawyers hang them, but journalists put them on the front page.Granted, this is a communication piece put out by the state and not journalism per se, but someone out their ought to be proofreading copy.I guess my brief stint as a proofreader refueled my picky nature.
Sheila, of course you remember the many gaffes in THE MONTGOMERY ADVERTISER. I heard that at least one schoolteacher used the M.A. as an object lesson on how not to write.They seem to have improved recently, at least in the print edition. However, news on their website is often incomplete, grammatically incorrect, or just poorly edited.
Perhaps the state could use a little "consructive" criticism - sorry, couldn't resist...
Oh Jay, I will never forget the Montgomery Advertiser whose idea of a good December headline was "Christmas is Coming."PD, I appreciate your humor.And dear gentle readers, I am surprised no one called me on my little error in the reply to Marsha. Y'all saw it, I'm sure and were just to polite to point it out. I'd like to say I put it in to see who would find it. Well. . .
And, Sheila, there's a gaffe in the final paragraph, above!
Ah, my readers do not disappoint, Jay. Good catch.
