Just yesterday Grace at Dragon's Alley and I were engaged in a conversation via blog comments about the careless manner in which newspapers seem to select their homophones these days. I commented that, while I was not ungrateful for a daily local paper, said paper was rife with examples of such bad selections.

which is not in the same category, but it does seem to be a selection of a word which is merely close to the one needed.
I have such fun with the newspaper these days!
