Our Apologies - Our apologies to Steve Fidnick and to our readers for our neglecting to edit an article that appeared in Friday's edition with a flip mistyping of the Shut Up Franks business name. We should have caught the error before publishing it but we didn't.

Please note it is a violation of the Baja Western Onion Terms and Conditions to submit any article that disrespects any individual or business by name. Repeat offenders will be banned from posting or receiving the Baja Western Onion. From our FAQs:
6. Please do not submit articles that accuse any person or business by name of committing any wrongdoing, malfeasance or deception, or that contain anything that might be determined to damage or besmirch by name an individual's or company's personal or professional character or reputation, or that is intended to "Out" someone. Please note there are serious anti-defamation laws in Mexico and we do not wish to become a party to violations of those laws.
Our complete Terms and Conditions can be found here: BajaWesternOnion.com/faq.asp

Understandably, we can't always catch every error or violation before it makes its way into the Baja Western Onion but we'll try to be more vigilant.
