Some errors live forever

This blunder is ancient: it’s from Ms. magazine’s May/June 1996 issue. I consider it a classic. The magazine’s reason for being—feminism—is misspelled on the cover. I wasn’t the first to discover the mistake, but upon hearing about it I ran to the newsstand to buy it, and I’ve saved it for 15 years. (I know. It’s a sickness.)
