Spell-checker befouls story
Food summit seeks “green revolution” for Africa
As leaders made lofty speeches, many blaming trade barriers and befouls for driving up prices, delegations worked on a summit declaration for release on Thursday.
The United States found itself on the defensive regarding befouls, along with Brazil which is the world’s largest producer of sugar-cane ethanol, and U.S. Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer bristled at the criticism.
You’ve got “befouls” in two places in this story. I think you mean “biofuels.”
Ouch. Another very tragic spell-check accident. We corrected: GBU Editor
