I guess I'm a little late with my New Year's Eve salute, but let's raise our virtual glasses to the Typo of the Day, anyway. The somewhat inebriated-sounding Foudat* bubbles to the top of the OhioLINK database 13 times, along with an assortment of related misspellings and truncations: Foundaton* (which gets the biggest response with 27 hits), Foundai*, Founa*, Foundt*, Foundatin*, and Foutai*. In order to lay a solid foundation for the upcoming new year, one should always try and toast it with a quality libation. Although some folks are predicting we'll see darker days ahead, we may as well drink up in any case. As Napoleon once observed (and with thanks to Salon.com): "In victory, you deserve Champagne; in defeat you need it." Cheers, everyone!
