Nothing Is Safe From Berkeley's Misspelling Spree

You all remember my August exposé on how the city of Berkeley can't spell Berkeley.

Well, this is nearly as bad.

UC Berkeley provides free parking to its Nobel laureates. But apparently they don't promise to spell Nobel correctly, as the Berkeleyside site points out.

Fortunately, the sign was later corrected.

UC Berkeley is affiliated with 47 Nobel laureates — one more than Harvard. So we really should get this right. (Stanford, with only 26, could be excused for making such a mistake.)
