On the "Do it Yourself" Overview, 3rd paragraph, 3rd line: the word census is mis-spelled. I love your show and don't mean to be picky, but it requires perfection in order to do each story justice. So, I thought even a little thing on the website can stand out.

I've always found simple typo errors like this. Once I was at a nationally known bank and was getting a cashiers check. The heavy metal plate embossed in beautiful multicolors the name of the bank on the face of my check. I took one look and asked for the manager. She came up to the counter and I asked her quietly: "Do you know that (the name of your bank) is mispelled?" She nearly fainted, and said we had a new one made and we've been using it 3-days. Does this make me an honorary 'detective'?? Ha! Keep up your super sleuthing.
