Observing Los Angeles

G-r-e-u-e-l still has a way to go with national media

nyt-greuel-typo.jpgThe New York Times was right on top of the Los Angeles mayoral election results, but they still have problems with the name of finalist Wendy Greuel. They only left out one letter. That's OK, It took many of the national media awhile to get the spelling of Villaraigosa down too. Within the past month I heard a radio voice mispronounce it as Villa-ga-rosa, which astounds me as this late date. That's so 2000s.

The NYT web story has fixed Greuel and even includes a correction.
