All right, then. Good to know The Ark/Medina Childrens Home is a good charity to give to.

In other news, in an article on the Channel 12 website about the Alamo Reenactment held this morning (Sunday) "Crowds of people came out to remember the 13-day seize of at the Alamo Sunday morning." I'm thinking that it should have read "Crowds of people came out to remember the 13-day seige of the Alamo Sunday morning."

*sigh* Keep dumbing us down Channel 12.

Just remember that weekends are when the people on duty at TV stations are most likely to be people who were probably in college this time last year. They have the "keys" to the web site and they do the best they can, but they don't know any better. The bosses and the folks who have years of experience, they aren't working on a Sunday - unless there's big news that requires their presence.

Would it be a stretch to say that if you've made it to college level that you would have working knowledge of the English language?? What's even worse is that if the reporter did proofread this and it still "sounded" right. It being the weekend shouldn't matter.

That is just terrible. Reporter should be terminated immediately!! Reporters are not allowed to make any grammatical mistakes at all.

It is terrible when you're getting paid to write for a living.......not to mention making their employer look like a Rube.

Written up, definitely. But that will probably be misspelled, too.

Journalism is dead. Journalists are pitiful these days. ( unless you are a certain political party, then all of a sudden, there is actual journalism happening)

Had a major lightning strike really close, so close I almost felt it, my body actually reacted to it, about 15 minutes ago. Set off a car alarm. I have my doorwall open so it hit home, so to speak. I actually got up to see if any of the greenbelt was on fire. Anyone else hear it? Paka, you live in my area, did you experience it? And now, silence.

It's MySA.com's turn to murder the english language. "San Antonio Symphony Pops orchestra slay imaginary villians with Bond music" ??? Whoever said that this paper has turned into a tabloid may have hit the nail on the head. How embarrassing. How about "San Antonio Symphony Pops orchestra slay imaginary villains with Bond music"?
