When our spelling is perfect, it’s invisible. But when it’s flawed, it prompts strong negative associations. Marilyn vos Savant

This signboard in Spanish has a few misspelled words. It should say: “Se prohibe botar basura, si no, van a tener problemas.” (Littering is prohibited, if not you would have a problem.) Beyond the spelling, the sad situation is how neglected neighborhoods and streets are in Managua. Poor spelling is a reflection of our society.
