December 21, 2007 - Martyd*, etc. (for Martyr)

Martyrs of all kinds are much on our minds, and will probably always be with us. Martyd* occurs 19 times in OhioLINK, making it a "high probability" typo on the Ballard list, and Martry* occurs six times, making it a low one. It's easy to see why there's a tendency to make these types of typos, so you will have to tyr hard to avoid them. Martyrs themselves often try a bit too hard and tend toward victimization. In the film Marty, Paddy Chayefsky's Oscar-winning paean to the little guy, kindly Ernest Borgnine tries to surmount a series of reversals and eventually turns things around for himself.
