As a former Oak Parker of 30 years, I still subscribe to WEDNESDAY JOURNAL since moving here last July. I found Drew Carter's article in the Business section of the Feb. 23 issue very interesting. However, his use of the word "deep-seeded" is incorrect. The word is "deep-seated," contrary to what Webster's definition "firmly imbedded" may suggest. Is it my imagination, or have other readers noticed more typos and/or spelling and grammatical errors in this paper in the past few years?

Also, how reliable are Arambula's findings, which, according to Arambula are "anecdotal" (Webster's definition: short narratives about amusing or interesting events)? I am skeptical enough when I read, "experience shows" (translate: "I did this once") or even "research shows" ("many people I ask have done this"). Please, Arambula, give us some actual data.
