They're Finding Me, I Swear
Honest, I'm not looking for typos and other flubs. In fact, in the last few weeks I've been consciously ignoring AOL News and Yahoo! News boo-boos that jump out at me.
But not 20 minutes after I posted that last bad call by Yahoo! News, I saw this Kanye headline.
It's "led," Yahoo. Unless, of course, Kanye had been drinking from a Roman aqueduct. Surely one of your editors would tell you that -- if only you'd staff enough of them to cover the workload there.

I know what you mean. I don't proofread all that much, but I do enough that things like this tend to jump out and bite me on the nose.
Right. And lately I've been seeing a lot more. Could be a fluke. But it could also be cutbacks and lower standards.
If the world ceases to value people who know the difference between "lead" and "led," I could end up a Denny's waitress!
