The day where you can’t spell. Or you can spell, but you spell the wrong word. Like in the full page New York Times ad that ran last week for Robert Crais’ latest, Chasing Darkness. The New York Daily News reports that it is not — repeat NOT — about homicidal bears, despite the fact that the ad promises a 'grizzly' murder. His Simon & Schuster rep told the paper, 'We meant 'grisly.''

[Full disclosure: since the error itself got quite a bit of press, a cynical part of me wondered whether it was deliberate. But probably not.]
