The Pen Is Mighty Indeed!

This is a frivolous post, sharing a rather delightful editorial error that I came across reading news on the internet.

The archived article, posted on, covers a libertarian protest in Havana, Cuba back on May 4. (Goodness gracious! Political demonstrations in Cuba? Yes, it's true.)

The following sentence demonstrates the value of a good copy editor:

Members of the Red Protagónica Observatorio Crítico...joined the main Mayday march, with banners promoting grassroots organisation and an end to bureaucracy, claiming that real socialism is democracy, as well as distributing a letter.

Democratic socialism now! And you should write more often!
