Proofreading - even the best (and sometimes the worst) mess up

Which means, either way, I'm in good company as this item from the Business Writing blog reminds us.  Indeed, everyone from an editor at the prestigious National Geographic Magazine (who misspelled "Alaska" as Alaksa) to a check forger (who was caught when he misspelled "cashier's check" as cahier's check) messes up from time to time.  The lesson?  Whether you're a man (or woman) of letters or a common, two-bit, scum-sucking thief, take the time to carefully proofread, eh?  Your credibility depends on it.

I am the scholarship dude.
