NEWPORT NEWS -- The name of the state has been misspelled on some Newport News police cruisers since April.

The last "i" was mistakenly omitted from at least 30 decals affixed to patrol cars at the city garage off Oyster Point Road.

In the days after Hurricane Isabel, a patrol officer noticed the Commonwealth of "Virgina" on his car and notified officials, said Allen Ward, acting director of vehicle services.

"We screwed up," Ward said. "It's an 'i.' It's easy to miss."

Really, does this surprise anyone?

"We screwed up, it's an 'i.' It's easy to miss." Man, that just cracks me up.
