    I've had it happen.

    That's bad, but this is one of my personal favorites.
    Let's just say it could have been written another way.....

    All I want to say is on the main page, the thread title is truncated.

    So what I saw was, "Speaking of bad head..."

    Anyone else notice that the header on the piece reads "The impotence of proofing"?

    I hope this was a little joke.....

    I have seen so many mistakes that are about 1,000X worse than that one...

    People keep saying in that article that is was a proofing error at the Omaha paper.

    What is proofing? Do papers hire enough folks on the desk to actually proof pages on deadline?
