Typo We Shouldn't Laugh At

This came out last night on the AP wire regarding the very serious news about the Prince of Darkness, complete with typo (in bold):

Conservative political commentator Robert Novak has announced his immediate retirement after being diagnosed with a brain tumor.The Chicago Sun-Times reported on its Web site Monday that Novak's prognosis is "dire."

The 77-year-old Novak told the paper that the tentative plan is for radiation and chemotherapy but details are being worked out with doctors this week.

Novak has been a columnist for the Chicago Sun-Times for decades. He announced late last month he has a brain. The revelation came less than a week after he struck a pedestrian with his Corvette and drove away.

No comment.
