Two mistakes too many

I LIKE TO LOOK through journalism job ads in my area, just in case, and I'm always dismayed when I find errors. I just found an ad from Virginia that had at least two mistakes, too many for the editor of an "award-winning" publication.

I see a lot of mistakes in messages to my freelance network, "phase" when "faze" is correct, "tact" instead of "tack." At one time, the freelancers might descend on this writer with no mercy, but now they seem to have more tact. And I appreciate it.

But I hate to see the mistakes (especially when they're on this blog or in one of my articles or books).
