Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

Billboard touts the wonderful education system in South Bend

I don’t really know that there’s much for me to add to this:

Story:

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (WANE/WSBT) – An embarrassing billboard spelling error on a sign meant to tout South Bend schools has been pulled.

The billboard is a digital one near the intersection of State Road 23 and Ironwood in South Bend. It went up on Thursday and was pulled Monday morning.

The billboard encouraged people to go to “southbendon.com” to check out the “15 best things about our PUBIC schools.” Obviously it was supposed to say “public“, but the “l” was left out.

Edyookashun iz kool!  😆

Snark aside, and in fairness to the school…

The president of a company called “the Blue Waters Group” told WSBT-TV the mistake was not made by the city or the schools.  He said the ad was proofed by 4 people and the typo got by all of them.

These four proofreaders will be glad to know that they have promising careers waiting for them at CBS News.

    And they’re all Political Science professors. Everybody knows that words don’t mean anything in politics.

    KG and Lori are both right!
