“We knew that a that a star had been discovered…..”
Yep, I let that one slide by in my last column.
Maybe I was so happy that the “T” works on my new keyboard that I went a little overboard.
I’m just too lazy to proofread what I’ve written.
We’ll go with that since that’s just the way it really is!
I’ve always thought that proofreading was silly since it just gives you mind the opportunity to add more stuff when you just want to get it over with.
These are some excerpts from actual articles that went out with no proofreading in our print editions:
“Shockingly, to some, the President’s head just fell off!” (1963)
“There’s not enough gas to get back from Mars. They’re screwed!” (1969)
“This one’s head did not fall off, unlike his brother’s.” (1968)
“’Battlestar Galactica’ is just a rip-off of ‘Singin’ In The Rain’”. (1978)
“The cat ate my tongue while I was sleeping.” (1973)
“We enjoy your readership.” (1957)
“We’ve made millions of dollars from this here site!” (2000)
I’m sure there’s more, but that means I’ll have to continue digging thru old stuff which I’m kind of bored doing.
At this time.
