On Oct. 10, this blog noted the latest error by George Boardman, The Union’s paid weekly columnist, mistaking the top-selling organic liquid and bar soap brand in North America for “soup.” And he also misspelled the entrepreneur’s name, writing “Dr. Bonner,” not Dr. Bronner.
George wrote this lame correction in this week’s column:
“CORRECTION: Sloppy note taking and some ham-handed typing turned a mention of Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soap in last week’s column into Dr. Bonner’s Magic Soup. I apologize for the error.”
No, George, the real issue is that you are clueless (AKA, “sloppy” intelligence). As one reader here wrote: “I couldn’t resist commenting over there Jeff: Magic SOUP? Would that be the kind with mushrooms? Does anybody at the Union spell check his articles. The name is Bronner and its soap, not soup. What a geezer.”
Memo to The Union’s management (AKA Don Rogers and Brian Hamilton): Don’t you think it’s time to “retire” George’s column? It’s an embarrassment to serious journalism. Oh, and Podunk.com.
