The Denver 2008 Convention Host Committee just spewed out another release -- this time noting that "local software company Nanco Global LLC has provided a software upgrade to the Host Committee's volunteer page at www.DenverConvention2008.com."

Unfortunately, that upgrade clearly didn't include a stop by spellcheck.
Because on the volunteer page, would-be helpers are greeted with this: "Thank you for your interest and enthuisam [sic] in volunteering for the Democratic National Convention in 2008..."
I stumbled on that typo a few weeks ago and, in the spirit of enthuiastic volunteering, sent a note to the host committee suggesting a fix was in order. Although the group is ardently seeking contributions -- it still has tens of millions of dollars to raise -- apparently it didn't want mine, because the reign of error continues.
Still, Nanco Global has a few more days to make the fix, since individuals who want to volunteer can still sign up until March 15. -- Patricia Calhoun
