A Common Mistake

Wow! What was the publication that made the mistake?

When I visit the Salt Lake City area, I'm always amazed at the obituaries in the SLC Tribune. If you've never read them, they are worth the read.

Wow, that is a classic.

I don't think it's real... look at the capitalization of "Stolen" and "Homicide."

Then again who knows...

Bill said...

I think the capitalization is done that way to reflect the capitalization style of the headers.

Oh, hilarious.

And Deb, I live in Salt Lake, and am frequently dismayed by the quality of the obits in the local paper. Rhymed verse is popular, as is straight up plagiarism.

Everyone's a copywriter, though, I guess, and really, why not rhyme? It's a fun time! And I'm feeling fine!

Yep.

Bill, no thoughts on this?

Well, what IS the mistake? I figured it was breaking the rule that says: in publishing a correction, never reprint what was wrong to begin with.
