I guess they couldn't think of a headline in time?

    Great job proofing that page, copy editor!

    Seriously, it's the only story on the page AND it's in 56-point type. Where's DyePack when we need him?!?

    That is fantastic.

    They could have at least thrown in something like this:

    KIDS WITH HANDS GLUED
    TO CROTCH LEARN TO COPE

    You all think you are sooooooooooooooooooooo smart.

    OK, I proofread that page and I maybe did miss the headline thingy, but I did catch a missing comma, so there.

    Still, maybe I won't send that one in to the Plain-Dealer.

    You know Ace, I don't think this one little mistake changes the fact that you ARE good enough to work at the Plain-Dealer.

    Thanks, spnited. They probably hate proofreading, too!

    I feel better now.
