Because it is the first of the year, with new laws taking effect, and citizens (including readers) are being asked to do their duty and keep the peace as well as obey the laws—we are asking our readers to “report all typos!”
Like lice, ants and kissing bugs, typos are a nuisance that can be found anywhere, anytime, and are committed by anyone, but especially hacks, would-be literary lions, licentious wordsmiths, and curmudgeonly pecksniffs. No matter how many times you spray your keyboard, wipe your hard drive, dust your screen or erase your notes, typos will sneak in!
Remember, if you see a word that looks almost right, as though it were trying to fit into polite society but instead of wearing wingtips, it lounges in scuffed sneakers, you may have uncovered a typo. It may sound right, but unless it’s also spelled correctly it could be wrong. It could be corrupting the youth, unless they are texting, in which case there’s really no point in identifying typos, S Ther? U no wht we R talking abt.
You are entitled to your own opinions, but you are not entitled to your own facts. For your own sake, but especially for the sake of our writers, who will not be happy unless you point out their mistakes, report all typos!
