Irreparable damage?

To the Editor:

I don’t know if I’m able to comprehend the indignation and trauma that descended upon Mr. Gary Svejcar (It’s Your Write, Nov. 1) upon realizing the monstrous mistake the Northwest Herald made by typing a typo in the title of the editorial about District 155.

He must be a perfect person, never in his life having made a mistake. I, too, saw the error and smiled, but it didn’t occur to me that heads should roll at the Northwest Herald for inflicting irreparable damage to the psyche of its readership.

I hope Mr. Svejcar will recover from the emotional pain, will not take such oversights so seriously in the future, and acquire a perspective to worry about the nation’s and our state’s truly consequential problems.
