The Wall Street Journal used to be a pinnacle of perfection. No more. This mistake (Dec. 31) slipped past the copy editor.
The problem? Their budgets are shrinking like everyone else’s. It used to be that they could afford enough copy editors so that this kind of mistake would never happen. Now? We need to expect more mistakes. Perfection is just too expensive.

Ah, but when your copy editor is a volunteer, perfection is no longer expensive!
