CONGRATULATIONS WINDSOR STAR
Since I pick on their reporters so much, I think it is only fair that I congratulate the Windsor Star on the opening and dedication of their new offices in downtown Windsor.
I do like the Windsor Star and I have never challenged their positions on stories they report. I may, from time to time, disagree with some of the opinions expressed. But I have never been critical of them nor have I ever belittled them, primarily because that is not my mandate; I merely want their writing to be grammatically correct and I will never back away from that crusade.
In keeping with the new spirit, I think I have seen an improvement over the last few months in the correctness of the stories presented. Congratulations. Keep at it because it is too easy to become complacent.
I wish the Windsor Star and all their staff the very best. And remember, I will be watching.
Find, identify and correct the errors in the following pieces. I suggest there are three. Feel free to disagree.
