Some maintenance required

One can only hope that our friends to the south intend to include a significant copy editing session in their maintenance. To begin, Presidents Day comprises only a single day of this weekend — perhaps the curious duplication above represents every student’s wish for another day of relaxation, but more likely is that our colleagues are simply careless (it wouldn’t be the first time one with a connection to Stanford did something blatantly stupid — the actions of a certain GOP primary candidate come to mind). The second mistake is even more plainly visible and scarcely needs identification: The second month of the year is spelled “February,” as opposed to the disgustingly erroneous mash of letters featured above with which even an advocate of phonetic spelling would take offense.

Some might debate about whether our institution or Stanford is academically or athletically superior, but in the case of copy editing, I think there should be little contention.
