Hey, it's an imperfect world and letters disappear all the time. It was an honest mistake. Everyone makes typos. Heck, there may be typos in this article.  No matter how many timesmisamarill you re-read it before publishing, a typo remains.

It makes you wonder how many people have driven by this sign and it didn't register that it was misspelled. The mind has a funny way of making things look correct when they aren't.  Either way, it's obvious that you are on Paramount Street.
