Oops ... how proofreaders earn their pay

From the online edition of The Globe and Mail, April 16, we have the article, "PM skeptical of U.S. move toward Israel":

OTTAWA -- Prime Minister Paul Martin says Canada is sticking with its Middle East policy despite Washington's major shift to recognize some Israeli settlements on the West Bank.

As Arab leaders seethed at President George W. Bush's tilt toward Israel, Mr. Martin said yesterday he is not convinced Washington's shift will ultimately lead to a negotiated peace...
(emphasis added)

The print edition, however, did not exactly refer to Washington's "shift" in that second instance. Use your imagination.

Sometimes, there really is justice in the world.
