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?
