I would say something! Is it possible they are testing your observation &
editing abilities...and integrity? Even if I didn't get the job I'd feel good
about what I did. And that is worth it's weight in gold.

Subject: Re: Should I Say Something?
I had an interview last week and during the course of that interview, I asked
for some samples, so that I could see what they did.
When I sat down to read what they had written I found quite a few mistakes. It
occurred to me that I could correct them of say nothing. I want the job and I'm
not sure that saying anything would help.
