As daily newspapers have laid off employees, they also make the mistake of hiring the foundation for their structure: the copy editors. We'll just assume that's what happened with the Orange County Register, which since its decision to suicide itself these past couple of years has increasingly had more and more copy errors infiltrate its pages. We spot them enough to notice, but today's Sunday edition is particularly egregious:
*On the top of their Local section, there was a mysterious “3”–but no 1 or 2 part of the section.
*On page 2 of Local, one of the headlines read “Stat Assembly races will be tough fights.”
*The most embarrassing error, however, occurs on the front page of the Sports section, in the story regarding your Anaheim Angels' 3-2 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays last night. According to the Register, the win occurred “Saturday night at angel Stadium.” Guys: the last time the Halos didn't capitalize an A for their name was in the 1970s.
