A Capital Offense

I set up today's image, which is from a USA Today article about air travel, so that the error basically jumps off the page. Take a second and see if you can find it.

Second's up!

As a journalist, it's of the utmost importance to spell proper names — of people, places and things — correctly. If you aren't sure of a spelling, look it up.

The capital of Argentina is Buenos Aires, not Buenes Aires. Buenos Aires means "Good Air" or "Fair Winds" in Spanish. Good air? That's nice. Good error? Does such a thing exist?
