QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language

Pig
News Item:
“. . . Officials in Oakland closed the trail after the runaway pig scared two children walking on it between Messalonskee middle and high schools. . . .”
Katherine Rylaarsdam, a Baltimore reader, writes:
“What in the world were the children doing walking on a pig?”
And  F.T., a Seattle reader, writes:
“This isn’t about our forest fires. But especially this week, everywhere I look in the news, there are firestorms. Political firestorms. Social media firestorms. Diplomatic firestorms. . . . ”
Not to worry.
A flood of criticism should put them out.
Maybe with the help of an avalanche of protest.
