Typo Eradicators Arrested

Back in April I blogged about Jeff Deck, who was on a mission to fix typos in signs all over the nation. Well, it seems he took it a step too far when he altered a sign at Grand Canyon National Park and was arrested (read the story here). He was fined, sentenced to probation, and banned from the national parks.

Deck's Typo Eradication Advancement League website has been taken down, although it seems poised to host a forthcoming statement from him.

So they've put his head on a pike as a warning to the rest of us grammar vigilantes? I assure you, we will not be deterred. But we will avoid defacing government property for sure.

Thanks to fade theory for her post about this.
