  • Pore--to read studiously or attentively.  Correctly used as in "The police pored...", meaning they studied it carefully.


    Pour--to flow or cause to flow in a stream or flood.  to supply freely and copiously.  If the police had "poured" over the evidence, it wouldn't have been usable!


    Know instead of no--well that's an obvious error.

  • I don't understand how anyone can consider themselves a writer and make errors so glaringly obvious.

  • Makes you wonder how many more errors are in the article. Wonder if they are hiring a proof reader?

  • Omg, that would KILL me, I could never buy a paper with that many obvious mistakes. Our local paper has gotten much better over the years at catching mistakes and would never make one that bad!

  • Our tax dollars at work! The education that our kids are getting is lacking in so many ways, and it's showing up everywhere....
