A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

Blackwater Keeps Rollin' on Past, Just the Same

The Economist headlines today with an article entitled "Iraq's Hired Guns--Privateers Under Fire". That headline is a shocking departure from the paper's usual accuracy in copyediting.

I would like to inform the editorial board of The Economist that:

  • "Guns" is spelt with a double o.


  • The word "Privateers" should actually contain an "ofi" where the "iva" is currently located.


  • And finally, the word spelt "Iraq" in this headline should be spelt "America".


  • Mercenaries have no place in a just war. Blackwater, with only about 1% of all American civillian personnel in Iraq, is merely the rust-flaked tip of the bayonet.
