The late Joan Rivers is a little less on the Yahoo! front page:

It’s not quite Jonah Hill on the home page of Yahoo! Style:
I was pretty sure the writer meant “Jonah,” but just to be sure, I clicked through to the article, which I didn’t read:
Just looking at the dense text was giving me a headache. If a writer can’t be bothered to hit the Enter key once in a while, I can’t be bothered to read her musings.

You know what would be a better way for the editor in chief of Yahoo! Style to thank someone? Getting his name right:

Sometimes when you’re in a hurry to post the latest news story, you have to be willing to make some compromises. That’s what I think they do at the Yahoo! front page. And the compromise they’re willing to make: Misspelling the name of an article’s subject, in this case, James Jeffords:
I guess it could be worse: They could have called him Jame Jefford.
