    DAMN YOU, AUTOCORRECT! A student at a technical college sent a text

    message: “Gunna be at west hall today.” West Hall is a combination

    middle and high school in Gainesville, Ga. There were two problems with

    the message: he sent it to the wrong number, and his phone auto-

    corrected the spelling of the first word — to “gunman”. The alarmed

    recipient called police, who advised the school to go into lockdown to

    deal with the apparent threat. Once the message was tracked down to the

    sender and it became apparent that it was all a mistake, the lockdown

    was lifted. (RC/Gainesville Times) …And to anyone who can type on a

    phone without ever making a mistake, we say this: You’re a better man

    than I am, Gunman Din.
