    People, businesses, news agency and advertisers no longer proof read. "a rabid skunk found in pueblo County has tested postive for rabies" should read "a skunk found in Pueblo County has tested postivie for rabies". The ability to hit that "send" button has ruined the quality of news available while, at the same time, dramatically increasing the quantity.
