Typos in the Globe & Mail

While typos are common in local newspapers, the Globe is fairly well edited. You have to look closely to find typographical errors. Recently, however, a few typos jumped out at me when I wasn't looking for them. One in a story about president Obama, "He's also doesn't have the intuitive feel for retail politics …" The other in a review of the film All is Lost, "… the events sticks closely to the plausible …". 

Of course, newspapers are published with incredibly tight deadlines: there isn't time to carefully proofread every article, and after a few days the paper is in the recycling bin anyway, right? Are you ready to excuse the Globe & Mail? No, I'm not either. Hire a few proofreaders, please, G&M!
