A Matter Of Opinion

Thu., Aug. 23, 2007, 10:01 a.m.

Speaking of Wayward Nouns….


Thanks to reader Claudine Luppi who e-mailed me to point out a typo in our front page story on obesity surgery. She wants to send it to Readers Digest. (It was a Washington Post story, not one of our own.)

The quote reads:

"This study for the first time offers strong evidence that intentional weight loss, or at least bariatric surgery, is associated with decreased morality," Sjostrom said.

Anyone care to share word misuses with us? It happens to us all, for sure.

A Matter of Opinion is really a matter of three opinions – those held by the people responsible for the opinion pages of The Spokesman-Review. Check in regularly to find out what they’re up to, what they think and where they differ and to joust with them if you want.
