The Rise and Fall of Good Enough English

As newspapers shed staff faster than autumn leaves, a goodly lot of copy-editors may have bit the dust.

Planning permission to build a home on the property had already been issued, but as it was waterfront, they knew there would be fierce competition from other perspective buyers.

And the New York Times, an organ we thought we could depend upon to keep up grammatically correct, has let us down. Of course, nothing warms the cockles of my heart more than finding others’ mistakes.
