Typos you’re really happy you caught…

Yikes. I just blogged a sto­ry over on Mak­ing Waves titled “Whales: more mon­ey in watch­ing them than eat­ing them.” At the moment I hit the pub­lish but­ton, I spot­ted a typo in the head­line.

I mis­spelled “than” as “then.”

By catch­ing it, I may have missed a chance to get pub­lished in the New York­er. Though my cho­sen spot would not have been the amus­ing lit­tle nuggest at the sto­ry foot­ers lam­bast­ing unin­ten­tion­al­ly hilar­i­ous abus­es of the Eng­lish lan­guage.
