Proofreaders Ain't What They Used to Be

Monday, August 04, 2008

As usual, it's another costly mistake for New York government. My local government spend $49,000 on an agriculture map. But there's a typo for the city of Marcy. In the map, it reads "Darcy." Whoops! lol. It's not a terribly big deal, and the government is *hoping* people will be smart enough to figure it out.

"Agri-tourism" is big business here in Oneida County. It's a rapidly-growing arm of rural Upstate NY's tourist industry. I'm glad they have a map out. Now if I can only find one...
