This picture has been circulating all over Facebook. It proves two things:

1. One small typo can really change the meaning of a headline.
2. Proofread your work, people. Especially if say, you're in charge of writing the headlines for the national news.

Google Translate should work well enough for those of you non-Spanish speakers.


  1. Given the new pope's stand on reproductive rights and gay marriage, I'm thinking he's not going to be a happy camper with this little typo!

  2. Hi there,

    I'm an expat wanabe who's decided to put Ecuador (Cuenca or Guayaquil) on the back burner for a while. We are interested in researching Chile. Would love some links to logs or comments about Valparaiso and any other Chilean towns/ccities. BTW, not interested in the "invest overseas" approach. Thanks much!

    1. You might try going to and searching their archives.
      Alternatively you can use your search engine " vlaparaiso" (no quotes)
      This might also get you hits for other cities in Chile.
