Extra, Extra! Read All About the Bad Punctuation!

The Wall Street Journal is a highly respected newspaper, but this is its second appearance on this blog. Can we revoke the WSJ's Pulitzer Prizes?

Thanks, Krissie!

Oh, this one stings. Man.

Yes! Revoke away. There's no reason such an "esteemed" paper can't hire people intelligent enough to use proper grammar. It seems to have become the norm these days.

Bad for the English language, good for your blog!


Oh, thank GOD that's not my NY newspaper making that egregious error! (I just breathed a huge sigh of relief. Now it's back to being annoyed about the baseball game.)

That's just hideous! I vote for immediate revocation.
