Data (or "No. 1"), make it so before the editors catch it.

Where can I get a ticket? (I can't believe I missed the news for warp 1).

Well, at least they've corrected it. But you have to wonder why a tech editor or someone didn't say "wait a minute"...

Proofreading is a lost art. We see "news" articles just about daily which appear to have been written using cellphones. Syntax and spelling errors point that direction. How it gets past editors is baffling.

And... autocorrect is a struggle (for those using phones). As they say "autocorrect is my worst enema." :excitement:

The editors have been laid off, or are no longer paid.

My maternal grandmother was a English teacher from the 30s until she retired the end of the 60s and would have been appalled at all the errors that appear in "professional" media these days were she still alive.
