Just a little matter of a typo in the headline in a story about J.K. Rowling, not Rowland. Evidently, someone forgot to wave their magic spellcheck.

  1. Spell check won’t help you on this one. This one, you actually have to pay attention.

    Oh, and do that old-fashioned consistency check, where you find all the proper nouns in the story, sidebar, headline, caption, and compare them with one another.
