I've made my share of mistakes.
Despite my best efforts when working as a newspaper reporter, I misspelled names, left out a word or two, and committed some malaprops – just to mention some of the milder blunders.
Fortunately, most of those mistakes never made it to print – thanks to great editors and proofreaders.
That's why on March 8 – National Proofreading Day – I tipped my hat to the writers and editors responsible for these headlines.
It's also a reminder that while we may want to strive for perfection, those unintended mistakes are what makes life interesting.
After all, what's fun about being perfect?
