Sad that the Tribune is going under, but things happen right?

It’s a real shame when the pros can’t even spell potential HOFer’s right.

For what it’s worth, I clicked on the link and that was a Letter-to-the-Editor type of blurb.  It is listed at the top as part of the “Voice of the People”

The letter from the fan got his name right.  It’s the headline that was wrong, and if this feature works like the letters to the editor in every other newspaper, a memeber of the editorial staff writes those.

All they need is an apostrophe: “Santo’s not headed to the HOF.”

I thought they were referring to “Santos L. Halper”
