    If anyone uses ttwitter or tumblr, and if the spirit moves you, would you be willing to let the MetroMag people know that they might want to correct the spelling of Harriet on their brewery map before they do a print run of hard copies?

    Good call, KTFoley. MetroMag should also correct the spelling of “responisbly” in the upper right corner (and should perhaps hire a proofer).
