Typos and Polygamy:
Freudian typo in yesterday's Maureen Dowd column? In my copy of the NY Times, printed in Chicago, a sentence about Hillary Clinton ran as such:

She made a boffo keynote speech Monday at the Democratic Leadership Council meeting in New York, bashing the president's economic record compared with her husbands.

The missing apostrophe in the last word seems to change it from a possessive to a plural, with adulterous consequences (though perhaps not incongruous with the a-monogamic legacy of the administration). I noticed the error was corrected online.
