Typo Wiener: Lindsay Reakes

Lindsay Reakes

In last issue’s news section Top 6, we accidentally printed “Toronto police office” when we meant to print “Toronto police officer”. Obviously the two are very different things. We also bungled the placement of a comma. Can’t we do anything right? Thank goodness for Alert Wiener Lindsay Reakes, who caught the error. Lindsay earned $10 and a Typo Wiener T-shirt. The part-time university student, who is very knowledgeable about power outages and bubble wrap, will spend the cash on coffee, “and maybe some gum to get rid of coffee stink breath.”

Congratulations, Lindsay!
