Sucess*, etc. (for Success, etc.)

Welcome to Monday and the Ides of March. I'd like to open with a joke: Nothing succeeds like a bird without teeth. Get it? Sucks seeds? Is this thing on? Anyway, our typo of the day is Sucess* and it certainly looks like one, with an impressive 212 hits in OhioLINK. (Suceed* shows up 14 times and Succees* eight times.) From little acorns mighty oak trees grow, and tiny seeds can often produce spectacular results. Look for this one in your own catalog today: you just might be surprised at your success.
