A follow up to yesterday’s post.


In Tuesday’s Gulfshore Business Daily, we announced that Francesca Donlan joined the Lee County Visitor & Convention Bureau as communications manager. However, we included a previous title that raised some eyebrows. Contrary to the interpretation by our spell-check program, Donlan was a columnist at The News-Press and not, in fact, a communist (an error that also went unnoticed by the editor).

Note: When you proofread, one person reads the copy out loud and the other follows along silently. It’s virtually fool-proof.
