Slow down, NY Times

That rarity of rarities has finally occurred at the NY Times: Not just one, but two typos in a single sentence. The boo-boos appear in the online abstract for an article headlined "Near a Breakthrough at the Baltimore Symphony," and ironically, the two misspelled words are spelled correctly in that headline. OK, enough hints - see if you can AVOID spotting the boo boos:

"If Marin Alsop's appointment as the next music director of
the Balitmore Sympnony is ratified, she will become the
first woman to lead a major American orchestra."
