Editor Kate

I mentioned how often I find errors in certain publications, particularly publications that are of the gossip/news variety.  Here are three that I've found in the past week.  I listed the error in the picture caption but see if you can spot them!

two commas toward the beginning of paragraph two
paragraph three - missing a space between "man"
and "has" - unless a manhas is a new species i'm
unfamiliar with... :)
last line of paragraph one - "has" everyone worked or "as" they? 
I cut individuals a lot of slack when it comes to typos, but there is a level of accuracy that we should probably be able to expect from publications.  I understand that their writers are only human, but what about editing?  Or at least a second look at what was written.
