17 FebThe math on the first story is off because I was looking at the wrong number as I typed it in. It adds up with the correct number: “…reported he had earned $2,0981,399 from one job….”None.
10 FebThere was a missing word: “…is apt to give drinkers…” and a few missing characters in my comments: “It wasn’t my fault, and it certainly wasn’t his….”!Typo: “Florida woman attacks man for walking his down dog down her street.”
3 FebThe swastika was an East Indian symbol, not American Indian. That said, the Denver Post source story is the source for the misinformation.None.
20 JanMissing words: “…the incident caused about $40,000 of damage to the house.”None.
