Semi-conscious

March 12, 2010 - Karin Elton
Last night I was laying in bed around 11 p.m. and I thought, “I should have written semi-annually, not bi-annually.” It was too late to call Cindy, the new news editor, who had wrapped up Friday’s paper by the deadline, 10 p.m.

I had written Friday’s centerpiece story on Big Stone Therapies and how the company sends at least three staffers to San Lucas, Guatemala, every six months.

Not a huge deal, but by saying “bi-annually,” I was saying the company sends people every other year instead of twice a year. Why couldn’t I have thought of my error two hours earlier when it could have done some good? Argh!

The best I could do was ask Per, the new editor, to change the story on the Web site Friday morning and then make a correction for Saturday's paper.
