I MISLEAD YOU A BIT YESTERDAY
Yesterday, I presented a line from an ad by Caesars and challenged the readers to find an error in it. The line had a colon at the end of it, but I did not include the list that followed and should have done so.
Someone correctly suggested that the colon was unnecessary, and as presented in the blog, he was accurate.
I was really only concerned with the incorrect spelling and apologize for being incomplete.
Check the comments from yesterday to see the analysis.
Below is the complete ad.
