    Where have all the editors gone???? This was the opening paragraph of a story in the Burlington (VT) Free Press today. There are so many problems with this sentence that I don’t even know where to begin!

    “Bright yellow police tape stood out among gray puddles on Greene Street, where it wrapped a gray-blue house with mailboxes that were filled to the brim with letters on Sunday. ”

    The rest of the article was no better, including “. . . there was no signs of a home break-in or of an altercation . . .”

    I enjoy your blog immensely. It’s good to know other people care about the demise of good grammar! Thanks!
