Why Not ‘Civwon’t’ Instead?

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser has done it again. They’ve messed up a bold headline with an egregious error. In this morning’s paper.

Lookit -->

According to the Star-Advertiser’s headline writer, President Obama is a legacy of the “Civwil Rights Act.” Not the “Civil” Rights Act, mind you, the “Civwil” Rights Act.

Sounds like something Elmer Fudd would say, except I’m sure he’d call it the “Civwil Wights Act.”

Wonder what’s with the headwine witer anyway? Doesn’t he wead the headwines he wites before it’s pwinted?

But at least “Civwill” is better than “Civwon’t,” no?
