Spelling still counts
Spelling errors still pop up in print and online despite our best efforts. Here are two examples:
Word misspelled: Government.
Possible reasons for error: Haste related to Web journalism.
Possible solutions: Check spelling before posting; slow down.

Word misspelled: Aficionado.
Possible reasons for error: Foreign origins of word.
Solutions: Use extra caution when working with such words; consider using a more familiar one.
