Slow news day

I don't live that far from a place called Northwestern University.  You might have heard of it, usually ranked among the top schools in the nation in certain programs.

But not in proofreading, I think.

Arriving in the mail this week: a postcard from the continuing studies institute of NU.  Prominently displayed on the front, above a photo of three of the happiest people I have ever seen, was this:

"This is the place to pursue your creative INERESTS, DICUSS intellectual subjects and get involved in stimulating discussion with interesting people."

(Capital letters mine, of course.)
