24 hours Vancouverrors

My friend, Jason, posted the above picture on the Detected Errors page on Facebook. It's from 24 hours Vancouver - a free daily newspaper - on October 24, 2011. As you can see, a professional writer wrote loose when it should have been lose, and that person did it in a very large font, indeed. Jason wrote,
You get what you pay for, and this rag they have to force upon people as they cattle call their way onto the SkyTrain. But jeez Louise, on the same page? Have some professional pride, people!
Later that day,

I saw this headline in the same paper, just five pages after the lose/loose error. The apostrophe is in the wrong spot, as womens' should be women's.

Thanks, Jason!
