More Regrets and Regretable Errors

Posted by on December 29 at 11:03 AM

This week’s Regrets Issue is particularly shameful for the copy department.
In Police Beat, we printed “end of the ear” rather than “end of the year,” plus “axe” should have been the American Heritage-preferred “ax.” Control Tower has a glaring error in the subhead: “Misstress.” We said “KRAKT” is a band name when it is in fact an awesome monthly techno night at Re-bar (and we knew this). And in the letters section, “overpaid” is spelled “overpayed.”
We, The Stranger’s proofreader, copyeditors, and copy chief, regret we were ever born.
We also recommend that you read this week’s Stranger online where these mistakes have been corrected.

Oh, Amy, I don't regret being born. I merely regret allowing myself to sustain the delusion that I have any command of the language.

I'm going to go scourge myself now with a brace of red pencils and a copy of Chicago.

Where online are the readers' regrets? Or are there none?

We received only a handful; they are interspersed in the big regrets piece here: http://www.thestranger.com/seattle/Content?oid=25830
It's nice to know that readers have tons of Valentine's wishes and almost no regrets.
