4. Two typos. It was inevitable.

Or maybe the cartoon's author should go back to grammar school.

I was gonna add something about the incorrect spelling of "received" that caught my eye, but hell, my computer won't even let me type it the wrong way!

16. the REAL grammar nazi saw TWO errors.....

The Senator in question is obviously a Democrat, because a Repuglikan has no heart to fail.

(I'll let the non-nazis among us stew over what the second error is......)

8. I wish cartoonists so incisive would not step on their great points by their silly mistakes.

Really, it takes so little effort to be careful.

Think about it in terms of time. If it takes cartoon readers an extra two seconds to stumble over the two grammar / spelling errors at the rate of one out of every two readers, and the cartoonist hopes to have 10,000 readers, then that is 10,000 seconds, or about three hours wasted. If the cartoonist invest a minute checking the text and ten minutes running it by a couple of friends, that is a tremendous gain for very little investment of time.

11. I found it funny too, and incisive as I said. Perspicacious, even.

incisive: (of a person or mental process) intelligently analytical and clear-thinking.
"she was an incisive critic"
synonyms: penetrating, acute, sharp, sharp-witted, razor-sharp, keen, astute, trenchant, shrewd, piercing, cutting, perceptive, insightful, percipient, perspicacious, discerning, analytical, clever, smart, quick;

12. not to mention...

... that too many readers will focus on the typos rather than the message, or will disregard or even disparage the message altogether.

29. I did read it.

There really is no need to be rude. It does very little aid the discussion.

I understood your point about all the lost time. However, for me, it still does not take away from the message at all. The communication of the idea is accomplished equally well with or without the mistake.

Would it have been better on the author's part to have not had the mistake there? Certainly, at least for aesthetic purposes. Would it have taken much more effort to eliminate it? No, likely it would not have. I agree with you in that sense. However I still stand by my assertion that it does not take away from the message.

I think back to when I was in grad school and worked with a post-doc who was from China. He struggled quite a lot with English (at least for the first couple years he was here) and he could be quite difficult to understand. However, he was quite brilliant and once he got his message across the prior difficulties in no way took away from it.

I realize that is a bit more of an extreme example than a simple misspelling. But I think the idea that communication is more than and quite separate from the medium holds true for it.

But in the end this is, of course, just my opinion.

Frankly the senior senator from SC isn't worth E-2 pay. Nor the junior one either.
