I didn’t catch Alexander’s variable spelling: the correct is “Viersen”. And (sigh!) this is issue #1340, not 1140. I also have the typo “fired after accidentally dumpeding….”None.

Tate Museum should read Tate Gallery. Also, not only was Baden-Württemberg correct in my editor, I actually pasted it in with that particular letter set to ü! 🙁None.

Mary Higgins Clark died January, not December, 31. Not sure how I typed that wrong.
The robber saying “ya’ll done” was definitely what the source newspaper published, though (since it was spoken) it’s clearly a police or (more probably) reporter’s error, and my general policy is to correct such unless I can prove it was written that way in the police report, so indeed it should have been fixed to “y’all”.
None.

PLEASE Read This Before Using the Form:

  • Please don’t submit an error already included above! (Obvious? Apparently not: I constantly get reports that are already listed. Please slow down so you don’t waste your time nor mine!)
  • Useful Reports: Actual errors in stories, URLs, or other things that actually matter to readers.
  • Non-Useful Reports: Typos in reader letters or ads. Such are not my error!
  • Honorary Unsubscribe errors are not listed here; its archive is kept up-to-date with any changes or corrections. If you find something not already corrected there, feel free to use the form below to report it.

Sorry this all sounds really grumpy, but all I’m really trying to do is avoid literally hundreds of reports saying the same thing. Thus: Thank You for your useful reports!
