De all that you can de

A report last Sunday about the marriage of Carolina Ventura and Dr. Zoë Rosenbaum misspelled part of the Ms. Ventura’s middle name. She is Carolina De Los Angeles Ventura, not Be Los Angeles.

"How's it look, spellcheck?"

"Fine, sir!"

(Note also the suturing error in "the Ms. Ventura's middle name." That looks like someone -- writer or editor -- getting the old feet tangled up in one of those unwritten rules that make the Times sound like the Times. A similar topic was discussed at the Log last week while Your Editor was knee-deep in the seminar.)
