13 OctYou can tell I was tired: I left an extra word when rephrasing a sentence: “…but they were a hour full hour out.” Plus, the Headline of the Week isn’t supposed to have quotation marks, and one was left there.None.
6 OctMissing word: “The baby was released into the custody of its grandmother.” …which is made up for by the extra word here: “Wilkey took her to Lake Soddy and, after taking off most of his clothes (she would not do likewise), and dunked her….” Last (I hope!): that’s cue, not queue.None.
29 Sep“Darrel Moll” is the correct spelling. Also, “Moll allegedly said that he was attacked….”None.
22 SepArgh! The end of “Bridesmaidosaura Regina” got chopped. The last sentence is, In a viral Facebook post, Meador said “I regret nothing.”None.
