Teusday*, etc. (for Tuesday*)

You've got Super Tuesday, Fat Tuesday, Ruby Tuesday, and let us not forget '60s Hollywood icon Tuesday Weld—but when I looked for the erstwhile sex kitten in Wikimedia Commons, I couldn't find any pictures of the real Tuesday Weld, only "The Real Tuesday Weld," a British musical group fronted by lead singer Stephen Coates. TRTW makes jazzy cabaret-style music with an electronic influence, a genre Coates likes to call "antique beat." We got four hits this Tuesday on Teusday*, and one apiece on Tusday*, Tueday*, and Truesday*. The word Tuesday is related to the planet Mars, which symbolizes war. Let's all go on the warpath today and dispatch these typos from our databases.
