Bridal Path – Bridle Path

Brief by Central Staff

Correction – April 2001 – Colorado Central Magazine –

In the March edition, a homonym slipped past writer, editor, and proofreader: “bridal path” instead of “bridle path” on page 27 in the article about the controversy over RS-2477 rights-of-way.

Once upon a time, before newspaper city rooms became smoke-free bastions of political correctness, you might have seen a poster with these words:

A burro is an ass.

A burrow is a hole in the ground.

You are supposed to know the difference.

Contributions for the construction and erection of such a sign in our quarters will be gratefully accepted.

In the meantime, we thank the many people who pointed this error out — even if some of them did sound rather gleeful.
