And now it would seem we need to take another institution of higher education to task. Last month we called out the University of Michigan for their All-Amercian typo. A couple of weeks ago we gritted our teeth and bore the pain of a yearbook page written by the devil himself. And now it's Northwestern's turn for a trip to the woodshed.

As an aside, we don't enjoy taking the mickey out of schools, but they're schools for cryin' out loud! We've got to hold them to a higher standard.

So. Northwestern.

They've got a journalism school called the Medill School of Journalism, Media, and Integrated Marketing Communications. Last weekend, the students who graduated from it were presented with diplomas from the Medill School of Journalism, Media, and Itegrated Marketing Communications. See for yourself.

The most delicious part of all this is that there's evidently a rather notorious "Medill F," which is the grade given to any Medill student whose work has even the most minor of errors.

Maybe going forward it will be referred to as the "Medill N."
