Official??


Were they referring to Alfred Marshall, the English economist? Maybe George Marshall, the US Secretary of State from 1947–49 who won the Nobel peace prize in 1953? Or Thomas Riley Marshall who was vice president of the U.S. from 1913–21? (Did you know this one? I didn't until finding this on dictionary.com.) Or perhaps the most well-known Marshall, Thurgood Marshall, associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court from 1967–91?

Then again, they might have meant Mars Hall. Come one alien, come all! (Hey, I'm considered an "alien" here so maybe this was calling out for me?)

Unfortunately, marshal is spelled with just one L and I've seen many, many of these tee-shirts and sweatshirts around... But seriously, I suppose if we spell checked French clothing in the US, we'd find the same problems...

Call in the typo marshals!

PS. There is also a Marshall, Texas in the northeast part of the state, pop.  24,921.
