A type of lava

One type of lava is aa. You may ask yourself, 'Why is that relevant?' Well, maybe the writer of this article ("Clothing found in Nevada could belong to missing B.C. man" on CBC News online on December 6, 2011) had volcanic eruptions on his mind. First there's the opening sentence, where the second a should be of, and then,

five sentences later, the second a in a a DNA test should not be present. One wrong a plus another wrong a equals aa. The article had already been updated at least once when I detected these errors, yet both errors - including that obvious one just three words in - went undetected at CBC.
