Update: Are there editors at the Chronicle?

We frequently point out the Chronicle's liberal bias, which dominates its editorial pages and frequently leaks into its news reporting. But our beloved hometown rag has another problem: lazy (perhaps nonexistent) editing:
Bit by bit, the voices of those marching from Sacred Heart Co-Cathedral to the St. Thomas University campus two miles away on Montrose grew louder.
That would be the University of St. Thomas, not "St. Thomas University."
Up front, the flags glowed under the street lights -- the red and white Polish flag blew gently in the breeze alongside the yellow and white of the flag bearing the pope's code of arms.
I assume Eyder Peralta means coat of arms.
Elisha Franklin and David Goodrich, peeked out of the Saloon Lonestar bar on St. Joseph.
That would be the Lone Star Saloon, not the "Saloon Lonestar bar." And it's on Travis. UPDATE: Anne Linehan on blogHOUSTON points out that the Chronicle has fixed the errors:

So the answer to our question is: yes, the Chronicle does have editors. Us. Also, a sincere thanks to Eyder Peralta for making the necessary changes just minutes after I pointed them out.
