21 JulFigures! The URL for the video went bad between grabbing it and publication (“Account Terminated”). Here’s another source.None.
14 JulOne tagline had an incorrect word order due to an editing change. It should have been “…What would he advise the community to do about this?” Then: it should have read cojones. Last, “Moana” was typo’d in one place.None.
7 JulI have the extraneous word (left over from an edit): “After alighting at the at North Shields station….”None.
30 JunSigh… here too: No idea why her name disappeared: “And So Long to author and actress Susan Bernard (the kidnap victim in Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! in 1965), dead June 21 at 71.”Yes, I’m well aware that my computer didn’t record the first “u” when I typed “Fourth of July” — and that’s exactly the sort of thing I simply don’t care about since everyone understands what it means, and it never goes into any archive.

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.)

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!
