that's nothing. news reporting in general is terrible. it's more like gossip around the water cooler. hard to think of it as being left or right - it's just plain dumb. the news in the morning is the worst. the people reading the news throw in their own comments on a regular basis. they even stike up a conversation among themselves right in the middle of the news as if its part of the story. i really don't know what to make of it so i rarely watch except when someone has turn on the set.
i wonder if it's the way it is because of how they view the average person?

Yeah, mistakes happen, but come on! How do you botch something like that - and on multiple pages (including the COVER)? I don't know if I agree it was reprehensible, but certainly idiotic and embarrassing! I'd definitely step up the proof reading. It's sort of amazing that no one caught it before it went out to the printers.

The Pleasanton Weekly is less professional than a high school paper. The type-os and misspellings are all over the place. This is just another one for the list. I and others have complained, sighted examples and offered remedies. A former English teacher offered her services for free according to a post of hers and was turned down.
