Hopefully CNI Newspapers Use Spell Check 

I probably shouldn't poke fun at this. Lord knows that I'm a terrible speller, and that sometimes I let some funny stuff slip through to my blog. But one spelling mistake caught my attention in this article for the CNI Newspapers by Charlie Sykes:

But Moore and Donovan complained that BuySeasons would not have created the "right kind" of jobs, even though the average employees at the company's New Berlin center make $11.55 per hour. Seasonal employees make $9 to $16 an hour.

What is not clear is exactly what kind of jobs did Moore and Donovan think would be more appropriate for unemployed city residents? Biotch researchers? Software developers?

"biotch" researchers? Is that someone who studies the budunkadunk on a ho? Or did you mean biotech? Just curious.

The article itself is good too, spelling mistakes aside. What I find even more disturbing than the fact that local politicians would block a company from moving to Milwaukee, is that they are capable of doing it at all. What's next? Are politicians going to decide who can move into what house in the city? If I want to move to a duplex in the City of Milwaukee, will I need the approval of the common council?

Update: Interestingly enough, not that long after I forwarded this post on to Charlie, the spelling error was fixed... with nary a mention to me. Tsk tsk.
