Errors?[edit]

There are obvious errors in the text. Were these also in the newspaper source, or are they transcription errors? My primary question is, can they be corrected, should "(sic)" be inserted, o r must the speech be left as it stands, uncorrected? 69.171.187.89 22:13, 20 January 2012 (UTC), ---the Ragityman---Reply[reply]

Since the original is behind a paywall, it is hard to say. If you can find the original source in the form of an image from a newspaper archive, it can be uploaded to Commons and we can transcribe it "properly" to this page. For reference, you can use the template {{SIC}} to mark mistaks in the original text. Without knowing if the errors really do exist, it would be inappropriate to use that here until we have scans for comparison. Inductiveloadtalk/contribs 17:38, 21 January 2012 (UTC)Reply[reply]
