Corrections wanted...
September 2nd, 2022| Written by: Martin Muller



Dear Friends,

It is September 2nd, 2022, almost seven months since the 2022 state championships ended, and I have finished all I can think of to do re the article on it.

I know that is a long time, and I very much appreciate the patience you have shown waiting for it.  There were several reasons aside from my visual impairment that caused it to take so long, but I do not want to rehash those.

What I would like to do is ask a favor if it applies.  Please let me know of any further errors you find in it.  If it is not correct I am not doing what I set out to do in 2012.

The patience I have noticed can stem from only three reasons.  One is that you stopped looking for the article and never saw it.  Another is that you do not read the drivel I intend as text and thus do not see the errors.  That is completely justified in my opinion and, more vociferously, my daughter’s opinion!  More likely, though, is that you are just being polite because my typing and proofreading skills have severely deteriorated, and you do not want to show me the errors of my ways.

I beg you, though, please show me the error of my ways!  I know my typing and reading skills suffer a lot after too much time on the computer or too much time in varying degrees of outdoor or indoor lighting.  Some of the errors I found on the last Division III pages were so egregious that only the kindness of the readers can justify someone not informing me about them.    

I appreciate that very much, but the wrestlers deserve better.  They are also more than welcome to contact me when I write something in error or that just does not make sense.  A proper “Grammar Nazi” has to allow others to redress the repeated words, the ending prepositions and the missing antecedents. 

My eyes are not going to get better but adapting to my impairment certainly can.  Part of that already entails relying on others more that I was once accustomed.  I have also implemented some methods to do better this coming season.  I want to keep doing this as long as I can do so with a semblance of what those in the wrestling community deem valuable.  Most parents and wrestlers know more about their seasons than I do (oddly, not all, I have learned over the years).  When I miss something please let me know.  All I ask is that you do so politely.
