Ooops. Spell check doesn’t work for signs.


Being a terrible speller myself, my heart goes out to the poor soul responsible for this sign which went up on the Mississippi State campus yesterday.  Hey, give him a break – there wasn’t room for that other “I”.

Reminds me of the time the “Starkville Daily News” printed a full page advertisement for a men’s store and left the “r” out of “shirts.”

Another time the headline on the sports page read “Stansbury indicted.”   Rick Stansbury is our head basketball coach and it was supposed to read “Stansbury inducted into Hall of Fame.” Funny how one little ole letter can cause such a commotion!

Incidentally, the sign has been corrected!
