  1. Nightangle sounds like a faux name from a porno flick. Even worse than this mistake is the fact that the Sun probably isn't even embarrassed.

  2. I'm sure the family might have treasured this clip in their family scrapbook. Now they'll be treasuring a typo.

  3. I can guarantee you the Sun isn't embarrassed. They are incapable of shame. If this weren't true, they would take pride in their work and make sure they get things right, especially in an obit. Nothing new here.

    The Gondolier once wrote that Robert E. Lee was the President of the Confederate States of America.

    See, it's better when they plagiarize. It's the only way they can get it right.
