Mr. Rewrite didn't watch a minute of Wimbeldon

Mr. Rewrite hates to draw attention away from yesterday's amazing video post on stationery/stationary, but he can't resist pointing out that many of those with editors make unforced errors when spelling Wimbledon.

How did Mr. Rewrite confirm the spelling? By looking at the official site, www.wimbledon.org.

Back in the day, Mr. Rewrite would have to check clipping files and reference books to confirm the spelling. Fact-checking is too easy these days for this proper noun error to be so widespread.

Perhaps this grousing is misplaced anxiety. Roger Federer is down two sets to one and playing for his life in the fourth.
