Out of sheer meanness

Or should that be out of shear meanness? The people at the local daily who are paid to write, edit, and check facts probably wouldn't know. In a feature today about table settings in the governor's mansion, we read of "Picard" China, not Pickard. Lenox would probably be Lennox. The photographed table, set for serving cream soup, did not seem to have a proper spoon to accompany the bowl. "Picard, " which was in an extensive photo caption, does not appear in the on-line version of the story. A stemless silver drinking vessel that appears to be a tumbler or a julep cup is described as a goblet.
