SD Sympathies to the Families

There was a horrible accident on I-90 Tuesday night involving several vehicles and multiple families/individuals. The 16 year old daughter of the driver who initiated the accident died at the scene. Her friend who was traveling with the family passed away Wednesday. Two other members of another family who were hit head-on are listed in critical condition in other hospitals in the region. The Coeur d'Alene Press ran the story of the second fatality as the headliner in the "Local" section on Thursday. And they misspelled a key word in the headline.

Undoubtably the editors at The Press are feel awful about this mistake, but this highlights a fact of the printed word - there are no take-backs. As much I enjoy the laughter a Spelling Disaster can give the day, some spelling disasters shouldn't happen.

My thoughts go out to all the families, all the individuals who were affected by this horrible accident.
