My Royal Court

07 December 2011

Did not seek, but this Grammar Gal did find

I was not looking for these blunders.  They found their way to me.  The members of my royal court know that it would be remiss of me if I did not report them as such.  

From a composition-book publishing company:  Our title reflects the reality that today everyone with a computer can publish what they write.  

From my local newspaper:  Dorothy Askew-Sawyer, director of the St. Vincent de Paul of Baltimore's Beans and Bread Center, behind her at left, stands where the center plans to expand, if neighbors concerned about its drawing more needy people from all over the city can't stop it. 

From a news Web site:  Amanda Knox hires a US lawyer searching for a book deal.

A simple edit could have avoided these glitches.  It seems my work will never be completed.  *sigh*


  1. I've noticed more and more of late on serious spelling and punctuation errors. Makes me wonder if journalism is a lost art...

  2. I am one who gets annoyed when I see such simple spelling and grammar mistakes how are is it to use a dictionary I have one in the desk draw and use it daily......and I still make

  3. that Amanda Knox book must be read with a pinch of salt.

  4. Oooh that's annoying. I see errors sometimes on official state gov't correspondence I get. Like, seriously? Proofread people! I'm forgiving with emails, but not with signed contracts..
