    Speaking of overlooking, I missed another misspelling in side bar to the article where "The Chairman"'s name was misspelled as Mao Tae-tung.

    In any case, it's probably worse than a waste of time pointing out these minor mistakes. Especially considering it involves the misspelling of the name of one of the most despicable people who has ever lived on Earth.

    I've heard some estimates that would put the number of people killed by Mao Tse-tung at more than either Hitler or Stalin. That's pretty despicable in my books.

    Interesting story.

    But, it looks like the editors missed something. A simple letter transposition and so easy to overlook.

    The name is Mao Tse-tung. Not Mao TES-tung.
