Ottawa County needs better proof-readers. On the other hand, most people would consider 5 out of 6 pretty good. A 92% is an A in most schools. And how many voters would really notice?
      It says something about our society that such an obvious intent has to be changed. It is not an option to leave it and assume most people will neither notice nor, if they do, care about it as anything other than a mildly humorous bit of juvenile humor.
     The truth of the matter is that someone would use that typographical error as justification to overturn the law, to file a lawsuit, to find a way to weasel out of some criminal action, or something along that line.
     That is why these ballots are going to cost an extra .24 cents each to the county. Well done, proofreaders. Better done, clueless, litigous society.
