Grammar Police: On the Beat

I am sorry to learn that, according to CNN, Mr. Wesley Snipes, an actor for whom I have had much admiration, has been "setnenced" to three years in prison for income tax evasion. I believe the copy editor at CNN online should be required to share his cell for egregious crimes against the spelling of the English language.

Ia agree with you on the copyeditor thing, but this sentence disturbs me: "Mr. Wesley Snipes, an actor for whom I have had much admiration..." Are you kidding, or are you admitting a guilty pleasure?

You mean you can't tell when I'm dripping sarcasm? Hmmmm. I suppose I'll have to work on that...

ROTFL - that's very funny.

I believe this should read: Welsey Snipes was sentenced to three years for starring in "Blade," "Major League," and "Murder at 1600."
