Folks we have a new term to use. The FSW placed a full page ad in today's national post.

Unfort they made a little mistake.

We are not here to fight anti-semetism

rather it is anti-semanticism

I would like to apologize for anyone I have ever called an anti-semite. I should have used the proper phrase of anti-semantic

Looks like the SWC has strayed somewhat from their mandate.

The lesson is if you're going to drop $30K or so for a full page ad, don't rely on your spellchecker to do your proofreading.

Are you sure? I've just looked at a PDF of the ad and the "anti-Semantic" mistake isn't there. It is, however, in an email version I got of the ad.

Indeed. I've just checked the print version myself and the error is there even though it's NOT in the PDF? I guess they sent the wrong version to the printer

Anyhow, I think this is probably less "news" and more "media" related discussion, so I'll move this thread there.

Too funny.
