Pardon the Interruption
Posted by languageandgrammar on September 22, 2008
A recent Internet headline read Bear Interupts Live TV Broadcast. I had planned to read the article, but I got interrupted—and sidetracked—by that headline. If it had been possible, I would have interrupted the site editor before he or she posted the headline in order to correct the mistake, but of course, that wasn’t possible. The only thing that suffered interruption was my day—-since I spent too much time wondering how and why that obvious error was posted. Did the editor think that it was the correct spelling, or did he or she get interrupted while proofreading the article and then just forget about it?
I suppose that I should let it go since this happened several days ago, but once in a while, I still interrupt whatever I’m doing and reflect on yet another minor shortcoming of the information superhighway.
