This item in the National Catholic Register elicited a good old fashioned “whuh…?” from yours truly:
“Threatening Letter Sent to 60,000 Churches by Thomas Peters of the American Papist Blog.”
You don’t say. Now really Peters, you need to stop with these shenanigans.
A comma is such a little thing, but its absence can make such a difference. Luckily, I was already familiar with the real story, having seen it direct from the horse’s mouth, as it were, in this little corner of the interwebs that we call home. And of course, thems is good peeps at the Register, friendlies one could say, and certainly the inadvertent meaning implied by the headline was, well, inadvertent.
Funny though, too.
