News Item: “If you’ve noticed fewer political lawn signs and bumper stickers during this election cycle, fear could be the reason why. . . .”
Doug Dahlgren, a Chicago reader, reminds us:
It is never:

It is never:
“The reason is because. . . “
It is never:
“The reason why is because. . . “
It is simply:
“The reason is. . . .”
Why?
Because.
