The Senate Office of Education and Training delivered their new manuals to Capitol Hill today. The manual lists available courses for Hill staff and employees. This includes classes on editing and proofreading.

With that in mind, here’s the cover:


Typical government operation… you get put in charge of the proofreading course before you’re made to take the proofreading course.

    Lord, reminds me of the billboard MM posted awhile ago outside of ( Houston? ) taunting readers to "Support Pubic Education".

    'Pubic'?? Otay…

    What -should- upset us no end is the absolute explosion of 6-fig policy WONKS that knock down major bucks churning this cr@p out. To look at home prices in DC ( you'd never guess there'd been a housing bust? ) Prices are still thru the roof!

    DC is an island unto itself ! Or is that "iland" ? It seems to have watched all the bad economy go by at a distance !

    It’s not pretty and it may be hard to deal with but if Zero-care isn’t repealed it’s in America’s future.

    "But a nurse could not find Harry’s notes which showed he had ‘48-hour access’."

    Truly sad. The parents had every appearance of being stand up folks. Likely the kind of parents that could've afforded better but thru no fault of their own were shoe horned into a one size fits all plan. And it's not like they were inept teens, they had two other [presumably] healthy sons.

    Does "48 Hour Access" REEK of Bammie lingo or what?

    I would say the one union spell checker employed by the printer that day was probably out of the shop on union business – so they just decided to go with the way it was. After all it is just taxpayer money being used for the print job. No problembo.

    Like the $200,000+ San Fran just spent to move one shrub, it`s just somebody else`s money. If they have to reprint them, it won`t hurt them a bit ! Besides, that would just be that much more work for the union printer employees. Nuthin` like plenty to do !

    As one who has been know to post comments with typos or omitted letters, punctuation or words, I know it can happen. Still to have that show up on a finished product and be paid a ton of money for it, it is embarrassing.

    My Dad once lettered "ALTERATIONS" on each side of the front door in an entrance alcove of a sewing shop. Well, he thought he did. A year later, the owner asked him to come by for more signwork. It was then that he noticed it said "ALTERTIONS" on one side. The owner said not to bother correcting it; if no one else noticed in a year, it wasn`t worth the effort !

    I once misspelled 'ENTERPRISES" (I instead of E) on a sign that showed up on TV during Sports Illustrated`s Swimsuit Edition. AIYEE !!

    They'd better use the help of writing services like… to avoid such typos and other mistakes.
