Proofing and punctuation hell

February 10, 2010

We just finished the design and installation of a time line for a Franciscan University. Highlights from their past 150 years now grace both sides of their main entry. They were thrilled and we’re very proud of it. The content was proofed by me, the PR director, his staff, the university President, two friars, and a host of others. Still, TWO misspelled words made it through. Lucky for us, our printer worked magic and the corrections are invisible. Stuff  like this makes me crazy. Taking the time to write and speak properly is what separates us from, well, THEM. So I added the Sentence Sleuth to my blogroll (thanks to Jakes Take for the tip) and had to share this. Funny how a little comma can make all the difference.

Jesus would use spehl-chek.

We all get some interesting people who follow us on Twitter. Joe Romero, biblepusher1, should know better than to follow me, given my annoyance with ignorance (not to mention the chaos and hurt organized religion causes in our society…but I digress). The “On-line evangelist” is trolling Twitter looking for  souls to save.  His web site here is downright sinful.  Riddled with misspelled words and lousy sentence structure, I’m pretty sure Jesus would appreciate it if he’d get a dictionary.

Monthly support (contributions) is greatly appreciated. If you send him a check, he’ll be able to get a Thesaurus, too.
