Thick red carpet
This is a Proofing exercise - please correct the mistakes in this snippet.

On all four walls hang framed tintypes of glowering ancestors. Is this where they arrest boys whose sisters listen to foreign radio stations? The woman turns pages of her magazine, one after another. Her fingernails are bright pink.
