This one caught in the SGV Tribune the other day and a call was made to the Editorial Room and asked who wrote this. It took two or three readings before the editor realized that what he was reading was impossible!!! They put in a correction the next day.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

I enjoyed this little Freudian slip of a typo, in an e-mail message from the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee:

“Governor Palin represents so many everyday average working people. She shares our conservative values and is our standard barrier [sic]. That is why I am so passionate about our work and cause here at the 2012 Draft Sarah Committee.”

And to both, bee and flower, the giving and the receiving of pleasure is a need and an ecstasy.

Ancient is more recent than Fossilized, if that's any help.  How about this one:  New Dinasour fossils found in Montana.
