There was a sneaky, near-invisible typo in last issue’s Gwynne Dyer column on geo-engineering. Somehow, we printed “global warning” instead of global warming. Probably a Freudian thing. Regardless, David Stanchuk spotted the devious little boo-boo, so he gets $10 and a Typo Wiener T-shirt — and joins the ranks of such legendary Wieners as Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall and frequent Dog Blog commentator Brad “The Moustache” Joyce.
Dave has lived in Regina for three decades and works in television and satellite communications. He thinks civil servants and (most) politicians deserve thanks for their service to the public. He’s giving his $10 prize to David Suzuki, to save the world of course.
