I just don't get it

If only my mother had the internet. She loved correcting everyone's grammar and I guess I get that trait from her -- not to mention majoring in English in college.

But instead of pointing it out to people as they are speaking, I am a nut about pointing grammar and spelling errors out on billboards, television shows and ads...and my favorite target -- newspapers.

As I've pointed out previously, one used to get fired for making mistakes like the one I'm about to show you. Today, however, you just get grumps like me blogging about it. Ironically, this was the paper's e-version -- which they could correct, if they wanted to.

There is a reason...

....that the nickname for this paper -- the CitPat -- is frequently altered to use a slang term for poop. You get my drift...
