Solidus Editorial Solutions Chas Bar
So at my rehearsal dinner this past Friday, there was a typo on a sign at the bar. Instead of reading “CASH BAR” it read “CHAS BAR.”

Within 30 seconds of my arrival, someone asked me, “Did you see the typo yet?” First of all, really? Did I see the typo? It might as well have been in 60-foot neon letters. It’s part of my life’s calling to see the typo. So yes, I saw the typo.

A few minutes later: “Hey, did you see the typo?”

Yes, I saw the typo.

“Oh my God, there’s a typo on the sign. Did you see the typo?”

Yes. I saw the typo.

“You’re not going to believe this. Did you read that sign yet? There’s a typo. Did you see it?”

Yes. I. Saw. The. Typo.

This is the double-edged sword of being the typo guy (or gal). Once anyone who knows you spots a typo, they immediately want to bring it to your attention. Still, the mere presence of a typo guy (or gal) makes everyone more keenly aware of typos, which can only be a good thing for everyone.

So once I had assured everyone I had seen the typo, speculation began to run rampant that it was done on purpose, that somehow the restaurant had found out that I was the typo guy and slipped it in as a gag. If so, wow, brilliantly played. No one’s ever thought of slipping in an intentional typo knowing the typo guy (or gal) would see it. Not on birthday cards, not in e-mails, never. Good show.

If not … hey, there’s a typo on your sign. Did you see it?

Education is the matter of life and death for any nation. Only those nations can survive in the world who has given their residents enough education and knowledge about what is happening in the world outside them.

The fifth was not named in the book around then. Despite the fact that the confirmation was solid, at the season of the written work of the book, it was not convincing that Eisenhower is/was the fifth one.
