Just Who Is Coming To Dinner Anyway?

I was totally channeling my mother this morning when I ripped a scrap out of the newspaper, sputtering. She'd have done the same, and circled the offending bit in red pen, and left it for me to read the next time I visited.

I'm just sharing it with you.


(And yes, I checked.  The oh-so-egregious error was fixed in the on-line edition of the Times.)

I see so many typos every day in our paper (a major one), and it drives me insane.

Now you need to file that sucker and really channel your mom.

But good catch!!

I like bibliomama's comment, and your tag "cranky."

My mother used red pencil. On my letters, too.

Shocking!

AUGH. How am I supposed to teach children the right way to write (and speak) the English language if this is what adults produce?

Is it just me or does it seem that less time is spent on editing/proofreading these days? Am I just getting better at spotting such errors? Am I getting old and cranky?

To which I say, "You're turning into your mother!!!" Or would that be -your turning into you're mother.
