Time Event
Oops, Magazine Edition
If I wanted to lobby for proofreading work, I would have to look no further than People Magazine (or Star, where I often notice errors but haven't been writing them down). In the March 22, 2010 People (yes, I'm that far behind), so far I've seen:

p. 32 ... W's infamous July 2005 issue featuring Brad Pitt playing house with Angelina Jolie after just separating from Aniston.

Shouldn't that be "just after"?

p. 49 The best thinge is Papa, a good standup comic.

Thinge? Don't they have spell-check?

I checked online and the errors were not corrected. In fact, I used the online version to cut-and-paste.

UPDATE: Town Hall apparently could use a proofreader, as they called Betty Buckley a Grammy "nominnee" in their poster. It's been replicated elsewhere so may have been in a press release.
