Hmmmm…. Proof reading at the Guardian… not what it was… July 31, 2008

Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.

Or, more likely, it certainly is if one thinks about Private Eye…

This from today…

It’s not called the Grauniad for no reason… 😉

Yeah, but what about proof reading in Private Eye?

In the last issue that reached me, Dumb Britain had an item asking who became the first black man to win the Wimbledon singles – in 1985. Which would surprise Boris Becker (and indeed Arthur Ashe).

On the same double page I found at least two other errors. (I’ve not got it with me right now, but I recall that one of them confused “reigns” with “reins”.)

Very true… to both your comments…

Was anyone else taken aback at the layout of Ian O’Doherty’s piece in today’s Indo?

Surely that is the correct Chekov spelling of the word? As in Ensign Chekov, he of the monkees haircut and swashbuckling manner.

🙂 … incidentally, apologies, meant to get back to you re the music thing. We are of a similar ilk. Scary sometimes… the music collection now spans decades – ones I lived through 😦 No. Wait. That’s a good thing…

But am I the only one here who’s actually gone to see the Monkees?

I would think so, yes. 🙂
