Tarheels do it Brazilian style.So once upon a time the inventor of English decided it would be a very clever thing to spell certain dirty(ish) words very much like certain very chaste words. Now as a result, the Punic Wars are constantly and mistakenly referred to as the Pubic Wars, members of the GOP must stress that they are not “Repubicans,” and as to the so-called “public option” for health insurance — it takes a single omitted letter to turn this noble alternative into a snicker-worthy item on a menu of waxing services.

PUBLIC –> PUBIC, that is what we are talking about here.

Anyway, some jackass wrote “No Pubic Option” on a sign and proudly held it up at a healthcare reform protest, and the Raleigh News & Observer kindly cropped that mistake out of a protest photo it ran on its website. However, the image appears INTACT, so to speak, in their print edition. Thank goodness nobody reads the real newspaper anymore!
