Maintain an human err. 

I saw a meme on Facebook today. It said, “it is not how we make mistakes, but how we correct them, that matters.”

Which got me to thinking about correction and such. 

I am thinking that there is something to be said for owning a typewriter. I remember using my grandmothers when I was a kid. The old way would have been to either re type the entire page or to just strike out the error. But grandma had these newfangled correction cards. You’d go back to where the word was, insert the card between the paper and the mechanism, and re type the word causing white-out to cover over the error. Then you could correct it. 

Computers have rendered much of the work of correcting an error obsolete, or at least, simple and nearly thoughtless. 

Perhaps it shouldn’t be so. 

Certainly not when it pertains to other humans.
