January 11, 1999
JANESVILLE, Wis. (AP) -- The pens used by U.S.
senators to pledge impartial justice in President
Clinton's impeachment trial contained a misprint.
Instead of ``United States Senator,'' the writing
on the pens said ``Untied States Senator.''
``The Senate is like any good customer of ours,
and we will reprint the order and make things
right,'' said Michele Szynal, a spokeswoman for
The Gillette Co.'s Stationery Products Group in
Each of the 100 senators got to keep the black and
silver Parker Vector pen used to sign the pledge
in the Senate chamber Thursday.
