Don't be a looser

A few years ago (and if I can dig it up I will post it) I wrote a column headlined "Don't be a looser." A contributor to the paper said his heart stopped when he saw what he assumed was an error, but was quite pleased once he read my rant.

It's one of those errors that drives me insane -- misspelling "loser" -- and I believe the Internet, allowing 12-year-olds to post whatever is on their mind on a bulletin board, is responsible for its perpetuation.

But the Internet can be used for good as well as evil, and a website I found today is an example of that. Thankfully someone has spent their own time and money to post a permanent reminded of the proper use of the two words. Check out Losers spell it "looser".
