Editing Blog Posts, Continued

Remember my mini-rant the other day about editing blog posts to keep them free of typos and errors?  Well, here's a post from Restaurant Girl that makes my point:

It seems New Yorkers no longer have to take out a second mortgage to dine at Sirio Maccioni's Le Cirque. That is, for lunch anyway. This week Le Cirque's launching their cafe "Lunch Box", a three-course meal for $25. To hell with that $8 sandwich from Mangia, which apparently arrives with a complementary grasshopper (see Eater for complete details). If only mom had packed my Charlie's Angels lunch box with red snapper and creme brulee. Of course it doesn't really come in a box, it's Le Cirque. A do-it-yourself menu, guests can choose from an array of savories - veal meatballs, spagetthi chittara and fava bean & pecorino sadly - then cap off the feast with tiramisu. While not really a bargain, it's also not such a bad deal for those who've never dined Maccioni-style or glimpsed the lionized restaurateur in the flesh. And for ladies who lunch, it's practically free.

Dannyelle Freeman obviously didn't bother to proofread, otherwise she might have caught the misspelled "spaghetti" and the word "sadly" typed instead of "salad." (Yes, I realize it could have been a Freudian slip!)

What pisses me off most of all is that this biatch is now a judge on Top Chef Masters. It should be ME! mean, if I make lots of uncorrected mistakes, I can be on TV as well?
