A local error...


This one comes to us from BETSY, who lives on the same little island that I live on. She gets similarly tweeged about crappy writing, and she was kind enough to snap a picture of this sign that she saw in a town not too far from where I live.

Are they actually referring to Long Island or just some sort of imitation LI called "Long Island"? Same deal with the "USA" over there in the corner of the sign...

Thanks, BETSY, for spotting this!

I despise misuse of quotation "marks." ;-)

I recall coming across a blog months ago that was all about misused quotation marks. I wish I'd saved the link now.

ChicagoLady, was this the blog you were thinking of?
