    Accountability is a wonderful thing! Are there no editors to check for this very thing before publication? If so, it’s even sadder than we realize. It’s truly a shame the people in those editorial positions fail to catch errors such as these!

      The spelling of your subject’s name is such an easy thing to check. And it would be easy for an editor to spot the mistake, but I don’t know if this particular article passed under the nose of an editor. I believe that Yahoo! employs editors, but not all of them are competent.
