Heat wave to test Southern California power grid

NEW YORK, July 20 (Reuters) – The largest utility in southern California urged consumer on Monday to conserve power to help keep air conditioners running without interruption as hot weather sends demand soaring over the next few days.

Temperatures in Los Angles will reach the low 90s Fahrenheit (low 30s Celsius) Monday and Tuesday with the humidity making it feel more like the low 100s F (high 30s C), according to AccuWeather.com.

You are one of the Top 2 news sources of reliable information now for decades, aren’t you? In today’s New York article about California’s heat wave, on the site right now, there are 2 – TWO – TYPOS!!!

The first paragraph it should be “consumers” – plural. And it’s “ANGELES” not “Angles”!! Shame on you, I am completely disappointed you let this happen. In this age of texting boneheads who can’t spell, I’d have thought you’d try harder to avoid these errors.

Gee Whiz!

Definitely not our finest hour. We corrected: GBU Editor

I agree that spelling is important in the print media, but you seem to forget that the print media is produced by those same txt’rs you mentioned in your complaint….
