Complaint: Misdemeanor reckless quote usage (“no”); making error permanent by engraving it and mounting it to brick wall.
Defendant: Con Edison Power Company
Report: Officer witnessed superfluous quote usage during patrol; was treated with suspicion by Con Ed employee because photographing an electrical power facility post 9/11 is creepier than it used to be.
there is also no punctuation between standing and active. it should have something, no?
Yes, absolutely. In retrospect they should have been called on that too. One could argue for a colon, hyphen, smiley-face; something to separate the two.
Hi Brian. I like your weblog. Its very well written.
Shouldn’t there be punctuation betwen the words “Misdemeanor” and “reckless” though?
I wouldn’t think so. You would say “Felony manslaughter” or “Misdemeanor simple battery” so it seems to work. Though I think you mean something like “Misdemeanor: Reckless quote usage” which also would work.
Police reports are rife with mistakes anyway, so I can always plead I was being true to the style, I suppose.
