FWIW, I don't usually use spell check programs--they flag too many technical terms.

But yes, I had several people point out the typo today, within minutes of it posting. I'm grateful for so many interested readers!

And spelling/proofreading errors are rampant in these days of spell-check on computers...

A case in point from Ms. Kemsley's article:

"Perhaps I've been exposed to a few too many horrified "ingredient X in your food is an ingredient in Y industrial product!" chemophobia cries, but I'm not convinced that just having the ingredients in the same please means that you have a drum-sized bomb."

Based upon context, this should have been " the same place..." (not please).
