Pedantry corner awakens
Sloppy spelling is now endemic, extending from print media to all forms of electronic media. According to the Fox News news ticker, US President Barack Obama just "singed" into law a new defence bill. They actually meant "signed."
Obama has a passable singing voice, and he has implemented some controversial measures by bypassing Congress and making executive orders. His political opponents can take solace in the knowledge that the US Constitution does not grant the President the power to make laws by singing them.
