    You’d think a bookstore would get it right:

    “Tideflats to Tomorrow: The History of Seattle’s SoDo”

    But then I point out misspellings on grocery store produce signs too. I’ll probably get a copy of the book as well.

    My apologies for my error. I do proofread, but occasionally things slip by. Thanks for noticing,and thank you, WSB, for taking the time to correct it.

    Now I’ve noticed that I did not leave a space after one of the commas in my apology post. Perhaps I need a to hire a proofreader!

Sorry, comment time is over.
