Poor or nonexistent proofreading in Star articles!

This has been going on for some time, and I felt the need to address the poor (if at all existing) proofreading of Star articles. This was made most glaring to me in Sunday's article about the three high schools pitted against each other in regards to University High School's future location (Section C, page 1). The writing itself is awkwardly worded and overall immaturely written, but the typos are appalling. I found at least five examples of typos: paragraphs 9, 17, 19, 21 (illegible as a whole!), and 27, which I challenge your editors to find. Although it may sound petty to bring up this sloppiness, I believe it is essential that journalism be at least legible and properly proofread, not to mention well-composed. I bring this up now because this is only one example of what I find consistently in the Star: unacceptable typos, the kind that are not correctable by "auto-correct" programs, but require adequate proofreading.
