typo vigilantism–fighting the government one park at a time

Jeff Deck and Benjamin Herson corrected the grammar in the first paragraph of this sign.In a recent CNN news article, it was reported that two men were arrested and charged for vandalizing a 60-year-old sign at the Grand Canyon. They were each sentenced to a year of probation and banned from the park for that time…oh and they had to pay thousands of dollars to have the sign restored to its natural mistake-ridden state. What was that? Oh, did I forget to tell you why they were vandalizing the sign? They were correcting grammatical erors errors. First of all, I had to verify that it was nobody I knew being arrested–which came as both relief and disappointment–for these new-age which trials (get it? I misspelled “witch”). These vigilantes were vandalizing property, but was it OK in this instance? I would say yes. They were acting on behalf of the Typo Eradication Advancement League, which was created by one of the arrested men, but I support him and his audacious statement.
