Follow your own links - that's no baloney.

At Diocese Report, this link: Mahoney PR Machine Set to Launch Ads appears.

If the guy running this site had read the story, he'd have found that the Sacramento Bee has the correct spelling: Mahony.

Another one bites the dust.

Veni Sancte Spiritus

Oh well, there goes half my material.

More Evidence That the LSAT Needs a Spelling Section

from CLOG -- Canon Lawyers Obstructing Gremlins:

"Well it appears Bishop Bruskewitz jumped into the frey yesterday, and proposed an ammendment dealing with homosexuality and dissent."

Committed to Proper Spelling?

Free advice for the blogger at Enemy of the Church? :
When you make a word bold, spell it correctly!

"comitted to living the celibate life"

You're welcome - NOT!

Someone lurking on The Corner definitely fixed the misspelling after receiving my email pointing it out.
Somehow I didn't receive the "thank you" message.

The denizens of The Corner can definitely use a spellchecker.

WE ARE DEFINATELY... [Kathryn Jean Lopez] Richard Goldstein too much coverage.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving

It's just too easy.
The writings of Anthony Marquis are silly enough on their own.
The misspellings just make them even funnier.

1) Is he a member of the "so-called subversive lavendar mafia" ?

2) You can always be assured of finding "desparate pieces of information" on his blog.

Serves You Right For Using ASP

The folks over at The Corner are having formatting problems:

SPEAKING?: [Rich Lowry]
?of that Mowrbay piece on ?Visa Express,?

Lah Skool Grammer Lessun

The aspiring lawyer at Joshua Claybourn's Domain
defends himself against charges that he's "young and has a 'gee whiz', 'swell' tone to his praise.".

"News flash: those younger than I have led nations, ..."

True. They also have used the word me when called for.

Kathlicks r gewd spelers IV

At A Religion of Sanity, a classic error appears three times in just a few sentences:
it's young
it's basic character
it's life

Listen up, bloggers.
The word it's is a contraction (it is).
The word its is a posssesive pronoun.
Ne'er the twain shall meet.

The fellow who blogs at Veni Sancte Spiritus is apparently a teacher at a Catholic school!

I found a couple of gems in a comment he left at Oak Leaves.

Gay or not, I don't think the Church will grant you an anulement.

As for your students, methinks you should spend some more time haranging them about proper spelling.

Kathlicks r gewd spelers II

Over at Veni Sancte Spiritus, a poll asks what's to blame for "the sex abuse scandal". Two choices are "Manditory celibacy" and "Clerical cutlure of secrecy".

Do Catholic schools stress correct spelling anymore?

Pot calling the kettle black department:

Mark Butterworth over at Sunny Days in Heaven opines that the Pope's writing is "disappointing in that he once fancied himself a poet and playwrite.". Next time, try using a spellchecker. The word is playwright.
