    That's a fairly common typo. Take a look at your keyboard to see why.

    Let me know when your typos need editorial approval for publication. ;)

    Remember when Journalism was filled with men and women of integrity and standards?

    Remember when editing for typos was done by humans instead of autocorrect?

    I'm not so sure that's true as much as we were more naive.

    Just the same, I'll continue to fix my typos as I go - if for no other reason than to avoid the wrath of some of our less forgiving posters.

    Reporters don't write headlines. That's the editors' job.

    I'm guessing if there was an editor,he took off early for Christmas Eve... BUT I would expect somebody in Boston to catch it..... BUT there are a lot of
    Gronkowski brothers..... and with the injuries they could have signed another one to protect Rob in case they retaliated....figuring the Bills wouldn't know the difference Rob, Ron, Roddy, Rowdy, Bob, whatever.............

    Journalism, along with spying, is among the most oft-mentioned as being the world's "second oldest profession" behind prostitution.

    Journalism and spying are very similar, since both are about gathering and reporting information. The earliest "reporters" may have effectively been "spies" more or less. But the earliest reporters may also have been itinerant "gossips", essentially.

    I can imagine, back in pre-recorded history when human civilization was mostly a bunch of small, independent clans and tribes, that there were individuals who, for whatever reasons, began to wander between groups, offering information about where the herds were and where the fruit was ripening, and what the other clans/tribes were up to, in exchange for food and shelter.

    Humans being what they are, it probably didn't take very long for a few of these itinerant reporters to figure out that they might receive better meals and accommodations by cleverly editing and embellishing their tales to make the otherwise merely concerning sound absolutely terrifying, to portray the ordinary activities of other humans in a way to make them seem like the acts of gods or monsters ... and so forth. And also by including titillating detail about who was sleeping with whom in the next village over.

    Thus was the profession of Journalism born.

    And thus, the origin of the traditional epic tales of mythical heroes and villains, deities and devils from stories told in front of the campfire - the beginning of the evening news.

    I can also imagine the effect on those tales when tribal chieftains, and other "wealthy" and powerful leaders, figured out how such tales might be "customized" to further bolster their own reputations and power. Thus, "journalism" also acquired features of prostitution.

    I can also imagine that, after millennia of this grand and glorious oral tradition, the "journalists" of the time fought tooth-and-nail to discredit those who embraced the new technology of ... writing ... probably calling it "fake news" propagated by amateurs.

    Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme chose.

    Spelling has always been one of my pet peeves, unless I'm misspelling on purpose, like Fraudger Goondell. But I don't remember correcting folks here, in spite of the temptation. ;)

    Here's how fixing typing mistakes has changed in my time. When I first started typing and made a mistake I'd have to stick a piece of tape in the same spot and retype the letter(s). Now when I type to send an email not only does it get fixed, but if I said that I was going to send an attachment along it would remind me when I went to send.

    When I first started typing, I could sometimes get away with using an ink eraser - if I was really careful and hadn't pounded on the keys too hard and embossed the paper too deeply. That worked better with some letters than others, and I was kinda screwed if I was making a carbon copy.

    Yup. I was born a few years before Bette Nesmith even came up with Liquid Paper.

    I always double-check autocorrect since I apparently use legitimate words that aren't yet in its database. Also, it doesn't correct things like "them" to "then", singular to (intended) plural, and is sketchy on errors in tense.

    Much of the time, I find it easier to use Notepad and fix my own stuff, since I edit it heavily anyway.

    More double digit TD seasons than Gonzales and Sharpe combined.

    2 more next week and he has another one.
