    The Importance of Proofing
    (Actual corrections posted in local newspapers)

    ~ IMPORTANT NOTICE: If you are one of hundreds of parachuting
    enthusiasts who bought our Easy Sky Diving book, please make the
    following correction: on page 8, line 7, the words "state zip code"
    should have read "pull rip cord."

    ~ It was incorrectly reported last Friday that today is T-shirt
    Appreciation Day. In fact, it is actually Teacher Appreciation Day.

    ~ There was a mistake in an item sent in two weeks ago which stated
    that Ed Burnham entertained a party at crap shooting. It should have
    been trap shooting.

    ~ There are two important corrections to the information in the
    update on our Deep Relaxation professional development program.
    First, the program will include meditation, not medication. Second,
    it is experiential, not experimental.

    ~ The marriage of Miss Freda vanAmburg and Willie Branton, which was
    announced in this paper a few weeks ago, was a mistake which we wish
    to correct.
