My paper is like that too. There are a few writers that seem to make the most mistakes. Although usually they're only grammar and spelling errors, in a few cases they've written sentences I literally couldn't figure out. The editors even make mistakes sometimes in letters from the editor. On top of that, it's way too right-wing for me, but the only newspaper in town. :O( Eric Christopherson
