    A misspelling without irony? What’s the point?

  2. RJ says:

    I wonder how many of the people under that sign lost friends or family in the World Trade Center only to be made fun of because they forgot the N in “Ground”. At least you didn’t call them “rednecks” and what not like Wonkette.

  3. Magatha says:

    Oh, RJ, please. Please. You cannot mean that I and other people who get a chuckle out of an ongoing failure to spell-check have no compassion toward people who’ve suffered a loss.

    Good lord. If I were making a big old banner or sign, I’d have 20 people check it before I deployed it, because I’m quite capable of a typo, and I care about my signs and banners, and I dislike being mocked.

    So what can you possibly mean by trying such a rickety guilt trip?
