Pu- nctuation

Grammar isn't rocket science.  Despite the various ingrained inconsistencies in English, for the most part, grammar is common sense and logic. Evidently, our "award winning" local newspaper hasn't gotten the message, especially when it comes to those pesky little non-alphabetic doodads like commas, periods, hyphens, apostrophes and such.  Now, an occasionallly misapplied comma or semicolon may be forgiven, but consistently horrendous hyphenation is not.  And it's so obvious when it happens as to be comical, if it wasn't so sad.  Here are some recent gems from our beloved "news" provider.

By the way, I play jazz with a feller named Dave Schlesinger up here. Any chance he's a relative?
