Painful? Egregious perhaps, but who is experiencing pain because of Moorhead being mispelled? Have grief counselors been called in to deal with the aftermath?

I would call this error more "embarrassing", "boneheaded" or "inexcusable", but it's definitely not "painful". Unless there are hospital visits that weren't reported in the story.

One year when I was a yearbook advisor the kids mislabeled the high school principal and the superintendent of schools. Both were a little upset with me, and we were much more careful proof-readers the following year!!

Reminds me of the Honeymooners episode when Ralph Cramden was on Name that Tune. Anyone else???

Well, at least it wasn't like omitting the "l" in "public" or anything like that. That cover will be a fond memory at the 10-year reunion!

When I was in high school a bunch of people went to spray paint the other schools rock and one guy misspelled the name of our high school. They got a kick out of that and so did we.

Good one gopher68. The younger generation suffers from the inability to spell as modern technologies pick up the pieces with auto correct of which they probably rely on exclusively. Oh well, life goes on.

Maybe they should just change the name of the town.

I'm sure our over- medicated "governor" will take this as absolute proof we need to spend more money on K-12 education. Well, education and a stadium for Jersey swindlers.
