Obsessives: Typo Warriors
The Chicago Times reports on Jeff Deck and Benjamin Herson who are traveling across the US correcting typos and grammar as they go. Driving a GPS-guided ’97 Nissan Sentra they call themselves TEAL — the Typo Eradication Advancement League. When they spot typos on signs, they stop and if they can’t ask someone to correct them, they do it themselves.
So they approach a cafe, a shoe store, a visitors center. They identify a typo on a sign, a label, a poster. They point out the typo. They await the reaction.
