What country are you from?

There’s been an unusually large number of errors on the Yahoo! front page lately. Because many of those errors involved U.S. pop culture, common American idioms, and American spellings, I thought that perhaps a foreign government had taken control of yahoo.com. After seeing this, I’m convinced that the writing on the Yahoo! front page is not done in the U.S.:

For all you yahoo.com writers in Mumbai or Minsk or wherever you are: No American city has a governor.  Boston is an American city. Therefore, Boston does not have a governor. Deval Patrick is the governor of Massachusetts.
