Default typos in May 2005 Chess Life

I enjoy Chess Life magazine but am disappointed by the number of typos
and editorial mistakes in the May 2005 issue. Here is a partial list:

p18, second diagram. The second Black king on a4 should be a knight.

p21. "Stein came close to the IM norm ...". He is incorrectly shown as
a GM in the crosstable.

p26. The players in a round-robin crosstable should be listed in
descending order of points scored, as is standard.

p29. Too much information about Tim Taylor's love life.

p38. The column entitled "Opening Secrets" is a useful opening survey,
but it does not present theoretical novelties and is therefore
misnamed.

p40, "Solitaire Chess" diagram. Missing white knight on d4.

p42. Algebraic notation is not used consistently. A move such as ...
cxd4 played in the game is written as ... cd in the annotations.

I hope that Chess Life will be edited more carefully in the future.
