*Two* errors?  So:

"_Moby Dick_ was written by Mark Twain."   (1 error)

"_Moby Dick_ was written by Marc Twain."   (2 errors)

"_Moby Dick_ was written by Mac Twain."    (3 errors outside Massachusetts, 
                                            2 errors in Massachusetts)

"_Moby Dick_ was written by Shania Twain." (4 errors)
