Michele Obama is in Charlotte today. A sign was displayed that said, "Michele Obama tickets are sold out for 'tomoroow'. I am truly impressed with the intelligent individuals supporting her. Surely someone would have caught this. Can't any of them spell? Oh well, lots of people in Charlotte will be really pleased to see this true patriot. LOL.

If you can't see it, right click over the red x, copy/paste the properties field and open the picture in another window.

Besides the sign, the choice of the word "patriot" was also amusing...

I thought that was classic myself.

I have to say, in general, I am disappointed in how many professional businesses frequently post signs and/or literature regarding their company and there are misspellings or lack of punctuation, etc. I can forgive the average Joe but someone who wants me to spend money in their establishment?

Additionally, I've seen more than one local paper make egregious errors on mast heads, bylines, errors in fact in the stories as well as grammatical mistakes, cutlines, etc. One particular paper does it on a near constant basis (I live in Union County, outside of Monroe). It makes me wince every time. Certainly grounds for removal of the editor (or it would have been during my time as a staff writer).
