Don’t rely on spellcheck

Here is a correction from today’s NY Times:

“An earlier version of this article misspelled, on second reference, the surname of a representative. He is Charlie Dent, not Debt.”

I often remind my students not to rely on spellcheck.  Instead, you have to proofread each and every word to make sure your document says what you want it to say.

Having said all that, “Charlie Debt” could be a cool nickname, kind of like “Johnny Football.”
