Getting hammered by Grammar Police

Well, maybe two phone messages and two emails doesn't quite qualify as “hammered.”

Seventy five percent of this particular readership subset this morning have been perfectly friendly. (Should that be “has”?)

In any event, I have noticed a shift in my attitude about the Grammar Police in recent years. These days, I find that I am somehow reassured by this indication that someone cares.

Their beef? All four suggested there is a glaring problem in the opening sentence of today's print Slice.  .
