Oh, brother!

When you're reading something - especially if it's a serious subject - the last thing you want is to encounter a dopey error that disrupts the reading flow.

Read the second paragraph and do so knowing that "dentition" pertains to the development of teeth and their arrangement in the mouth. It's highly unlikely that SpellCheck would replace a common word like "detention" with the less common "dentition", so what's the excuse, Record?

The Caption Monster took three big bites out of The Record today:

1. The very first word.........

2. At least the story got his name right.

3. This is utter stupidity. You can SEE the player's name on his uniform!

Here's a typo that could give a celebrated chef indigestion:

A gushing profile of Chef Laurent Tourondel appeared on the front page of the Hackensack Chronicle last Friday (March 26), reprinted from NorthJersey.com and The Record of Woodland Park. I'm not sure what the purpose of such profiles are, but they are a specialty of Esther Davidowitz, The Record's food editor and chief restaurant reviewer who rarely, if ever, makes clear whether she is comped or pays for her meals.

Tourondel opened LT Bar & Grill "in Hackensack," the profile says, but the actual location, the Shops at Riverside on Hackensack Avenue, isn't mentioned. But that's not the typo.

The profile jumps from the front page to Page 3 and again to Page 4, going on and on about all the restaurants he's opened around the world, and how great his food tastes.

"He ended up cooking in Moscow, Brazil, Vietnam and Las Vegas," Davidowitz exclaims, "and in 2020 opened Cello in New York to rave reviews. He went on to open BLT Steak (2004), BLT Fish (2005)...."

Sorry, Esther. Cello opened in 1999.

Here's a typo

As unbelievably horrifying as this error may be, the real error is that it is not a typo - a typing term that includes errors due to mechanical failure or slips of the hand or finger, but excludes errors of ignorance.
