Tom found a typo in Time magazine. Like him, I'm kinda glad to see it. But, then, I'm one of those people who smiles with relief when I come across a typo in a book or an article I'm reading, mainly because it's a reassuring reminder that I'm not the only person in the world who makes small mistakes like that. And because I know there's another person who's cringing over that mistake, has had it brought to their attention several times by different people who think they're the first person to spot it and rush, and who may also be filled with dread right now because he or she works for one of those people for whom there's no such thing as a small mistake. Because nobody's perfect, but that doesn't stop people from demanding perfection .
