Back to School: Bureaucrats Fix Spelling Error!
Well that was fast. Yesterday afternoon we posted a photo from TLD contributor Erin Rodriguez showing a really embarrassing spelling error in a “school crossing” sign painted on Stanton Street, right in front of Marta Valle High School. The Post picked up (stole) the story this morning and the rest of the media (mainstream and otherwise) followed suit. Turns out the city (and/or its contractors) are capable of working quickly when sufficiently humiliated. A few moments ago, we walked by the school. The “SHCOOL X-NG” lettering is no more. As you can see, they only bothered to replace the “C” and the “H.” But we won’t quibble. At least they fixed it.
