To the editor:

Hats off to your proofreader. He/she keeps us on our toes!

Check out the “Mississippi facts” thing you use for a filler along the top of one of the pages for today’s (June 1, 2016) paper: i.e., Mississippi is the 2nd most populous state.

This one I couldn’t let go. I had to make a comment. (Much like those guys who commented about the lost pig story you ran a few weeks back; you know they are rolling in the aisles.)

Editor’s note: The fact should have been Mississippi is the 32nd most populous state. We regret the typo and are happy to set the record straight.
