Ouch! A hard typo to avoid

There’s an unspokin rule in publishing: The larger the font, the more embarasing the typo. That’s compounded by how many words there are in the first place. After all, if you have less to prufe-read, you should be abel to spot an arror.

Now, I myslef have been known to make a typo or two, so I take no pleasure in pointing our mispellings by others. But this one made me cringe a little, precisely because it is a flyer for a publication, the Texas Observer, touting it’s journalistic experteez. I showed it to a friend, also a writer in town, and it took her four seconds to see it. Do you? Ouch! If you can’t see the typo, well, that’s just plane wierd.
