I almost never write about typos and other little mistakes in The Star, because I don't think they usually amount to much. I fully appreciate how a bad spelling jumps out at the reader.
But the past few days' papers have had more than their usual fair share. Today's A-2 contains two: A reference to "fourty" buildings in the Today's Top 5 list, and a reference to a woman's "blog sugar" in a photo caption.
The really unfortunate one, though: The main headline on Sunday's Star Magazine cover refers to "Kitch City," which is of course missing an s.
One place I disagree with readers, though, is when someone tells me he or she could easily copy edit the entire paper without flaw every day. It's a much tougher job than some folks realize, especially on deadline. But every typo is regrettable.
