Arthur Miller has diedy[sic]

Of course I'm quoting the Times. Yes the paper of "wreck-ord" and AP have done it again, this time with a lovely type in the first paragraph of Arthur Miller's death notice. Please excuse the quality of the screen shot:

Maybe the poor overworked editors and proofreaders grew jaded of all the Ys in the paragraph ( Willy, Roxbury, awry) and overlooked the one on the end of "died."
No matter how it happened, it is just another example of sloppy journalism. Don't they have spell check?

hi there
i don't know what is wrong with me that i can't flickr, but i really hate it there...
i am considering using it to make archives of my posts here, but still haven't gotten over my adversion to using it

i went on sunday and thought it was such a wonderful experience; i even broke my "i'm in the studio working so i can't flog" ban to post one on /ci_da_de.
