>Macon Telegraph is NOT smarter than a fifth grader

I opened today’s paper, and read through, to find a horror of a level that leaves me damn near speechless. On page 1E, the main headline for the main article of the Life and Style page, this abomination:

Please note that this is an actual scan of the paper I am holding in my hand right now.

I really… this is just mind boggling.

Macon Telegraph, spellcheckers are not an appropriate replacement for actual editing. A mistake this glaring would be bad enough in text, but in a headline?

I’m sorry, but this is simply unacceptable. I’m used to seeing this crap on internet forums and YouTube videos, but a professional newspaper? Just because you’re supposed be writing at a fifth grade level doesn’t mean you should be making fifth grade grammar errors.
