Find the boo boos

Two meaning-altering typos in the news...

1. From a Netscape.com article about the tsunamis in southern Asia: "They briefly clung to a telephone poll..." It's amazing they were able to cling to a poll at all (they must have been Democrats).

2. From an article in the December 27 Newsweek: "Kerik...said he would describe it [his relationship with Judith Regan] as a 'brother-sister' elationship." We hope there was some elation in their relationship, because Kerik isn't getting much now.
