They realy do.
For some of you who happen to view an article of mine as soon as it hits the web, I apologize — I always end up making corrections once it’s posted. Consistently, when I first see it in all its published glory, I’m made aware of more gaffes. Furthermore, I have a proofreader who follows up after the fact, and often, she schools me. Mistakes, mistakes.
But as Benjamin Franklin discovered — and as chronicled hilariously in his autobiography (which I highly, highly recommend) — perfection is unattainable.
Still, I’ve never hada typo this bad.
The Post-Journal newspaper of Jamestown, New York recently ran a feature on actress Julia Roberts and her career uptick after more than three decades in the business.
That’s nice. I like Julia.
But it doesn’t sound like the Post-Journal does. Their headline?
Well, just take a look for yourself:

So far as I’ve seen, never in the history of newspapers — or of holes — has there been such an unfortunate error.
Although, I will say this: at least her holes are oozing with success!
The Post-Journal was running an Associated Press article wherein Julia noted, “With age comes more complexity of possible parts.”
Sorry ’bout that, Julia. But keep those roles comin’. I just assume your a left-winger, but I love the fact that I have to assume, as opposed to gleaning that fact from your puerile, 11-year-oldish tweeting while sitting behind Brett Kavanaugh on Capitol Hill (I’m looking squarely at you, my personal heartbreak, Alyssa Milano — here, here, here, here, and all over the stnking place).
By the way, what’s your opinion of Julia? What’s your favorite hol– I mean, role, that she’s played? For a few examples of enjoyable movies, I’m gonna go with Sleeping With the Enemy, Runaway Bride, Conspiracy Theory (with Mel Gibson), Erin Brockovich, and Notting Hill (with Spike). How ’bout you?
