Another zero typo in an Ottawa Citizen headline

Here's another one for all of the typography geeks who read this blog.

Last week in the Ottawa Citizen, a typo in the headline about the University of Ottawa inadvertently called the school "U of Zero" insted of "U of O".

It happened again this morning, in the top story on the main page. And ironically, it was a headline for a story about Larry O'Brien, who is of course famous for his "Zero Means Zero" motto. Here's the headline, with a zero instead of an "O" in the mayor's name (click for a bigger view):
...and for comparison, here's the headline from the Page 2 continuation of the story, with the correct letter O.
