Proofreading errors so far today...

In a story by the Associated Press on MSN about the death of Ted Koppel's son, the writer left out the word 'to' in the tenth paragraph. "Koppel and the drinking buddy eventually wound up at the apartment, which belonged a friend of Wimberly's, the official said."

Not surprisingly, a grammatical error from WONDERWALL. In a blurb about K.Stew's latest run-in with the paparazzi, the 'hot gossip' writer used the word 'along' instead of 'alone', making the entire sentence senseless. Shortly after posting my thoughts on the mistake, it was corrected.

Thank you.
