Catch the Errors Missed by WSJ Editors
On a blog he runs for the Wall Street Journal, Paul R. Martin includes the following quiz, composed of errors that slipped past WSJ editors and made into print. Can you catch the gaffs?

- A Harvard graduate, Ms. Abramson’s previous roles included deputy bureau chief at The Wall Street Journal.
- A couple years ago after he spent more than a week in Iran to cover the elections and the violent aftermath, Mr. Keller said afterward that the “nicest thing about being in Iran is nobody asked me about” the parlous state of the newspaper industry.
- When I come home, I eat a whole pizza pie and a box of donuts.
