In the latest mag the first page editorial starts off "A new has begun" !

Just thought I'd point it out :)

Generally it's the job of a proof reader.

Means that the journalist is responsible for his own typo's and the 'Editor' and team check content,- for legality and so forth and placement of the piece in the paper - this applies these days to all print media I think.

So that little typo was possibly clumsy electronic cut'n'paste more than anything else I would suggest.

When you think of the billions of words put in to print it is surprising that so few such errors make it through to the final product.

it was an error, and we apologise.

All those concerned have had the company Mercedes confiscated.

Wasn't me, I missed it. It was the daughter !

Generally, I find PCA error free. This one is so noticeable because the error is within the first three words of the magazine.

"All those concerned have had the company Mercedes confiscated."

I hope 'they' don't all try to drive it at once; could get crowded in there!!

Or

Is a committee of drivers likely to design a camel instead of the planned horse (or in this case a 'round robin' route)?

It should read 'A new year has begun'
