Keep Your Kids Out of Indiana's "Pubic" Schools

Stories like this one out of South Bend, Indiana, are always great blog fodder:
    If you ever wondered how much difference just one letter can make when it comes to a message, ask the thousands of people who drove by a digital billboard near the intersection of Ironwood and State Road 23 between Thursday and Monday morning.

    The ad urged people to go to the "" website for a look at the "15 best things about our pubic schools." That's right, the billboard said "pubic" instead of "public" schools. The letter "L" had been left out of the word public.

Now, I don't know what's more sad, the fact that an ad celebrating public education was misspelled, or that the reporter thought it necessary to explain to her readers exactly which letter in the word was missing. Either way, it doesn't reflect well on the people of Indiana.
