  1. I especially like the part of the article that says “While at Desert View Watchtower on the South Rim on March 28…” What could be better in an article about typos than a spelling error.

  2. Kevin, “desert” is spelled correctly. I’m confused as to what you think it should have read. Unless you’re joking, in which case, nevermind.

  3. Kevin and Joe:

    “Desert” is a typically hot and sandy bit of land.

    “Dessert” is a tasty after-dinner treat. Now with twice as much S!

    Have fun with your newfound literacy.

  4. That’s funny. There’s an Italian restaurant right down the street from me with a neon sign in the window advertising that they have “deserts.” I’m just glad I don’t live in a hot dessert.
