Puzzling typos

As a copy editor, I understand and sympathize about typos and other errors. I’ve made some doozies over the years, and I’ve let others slip past me. I once edited temblor, a synonym for earthquake, to trembler. (What was I thinking?!?) But a typo on the television screen this morning baffles me. I don’t want to go all Eats-Shoots-And-Leaves on everyone, but a person would have to go out of his or her way to insert an apostrophe here.


For the folks outside the Triangle, the building is Reynolds Coliseum in Raleigh, named for a member of the Reynolds family.
