Today's GN

Hays published three nonfiction books: "G-2: Intelligence for Patton" (1971), "Country Editor" (1974) "State Science in Illinois" (1980) and "A Race at Bay" (1994) and edited another nonfiction book, "Early Stories From the Land."

I am not sure that an inability to count is actually a grammar issue, but it is certainly an appalling editing issue. This in an article where a character in the book being discussed is referred to one time as D. J., and one time as J. D.

Today's grammar nazi

One of the rotating headlines on our local paper's website:

Watching the Looop

I know, it is tempting to just keep pushing that 'o' key once you get started, but really, why doesn't anyone READ these things before posting them? It's a major headline being featured on the website, for pete's sake. How long would it take to just look it over before posting?

Oops, I missed one!

72 (which is really 71, but I forgot it). The Curse of Kings by Victoria Holt

Another one of the comfort reads. This one was pretty sad, with several deaths, but still a wonderful book.

Too much cooking and cleaning these days, I am forgetting entire books....
