24 MarI have the shark→whale write-o.

Seriously, read this part! As noted in the “PLEASE read this” section below, H.U. corrections are made on the archive and are generally not shown here. Please stop telling me about “Trace”! That was fixed Monday. The idea of this page is to save both you and me time.

17 MarI have the missing word: “where he had risen…”, and “an impound lot”. Thanks, all!None.
10 MarI have the extraneous word: “…found three voicemails with filled with profanities.”None.
3 MarMy error: the Ferrari crash was in Arvada, Colo., not Aurora. I also have the Hays→Says typo.None.

PLEASE Read This Before Using the Form:

  • Please don’t submit an error already included above! (Obvious? Nope: I constantly get reports that are already listed.)
  • Useful Reports: Actual errors in stories, URLs, or other things that matter to readers.
  • Non-Useful Reports: Typos in reader letters or ads. Such are not my error!

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!
