Typical West Valley.

"Police do not believe and neither speed nor impairment seem to be a factor." This is the second article I have read that this sentence is grammatically incorrect. What gives?


You're new to contemporary journalism, eh Michael?? Sadly, the American public is no longer intelligent enough to expect grammatically correct journalism (hard to expect proper grammar when you've never learned it yourself.) Just watch the epic failure when you ask someone to describe the difference between "your" and "you're" or "there", "they're" and "their." We tend to celebrate ignorance in this country and if you point it out YOU are considered a "grammar N-a-z-i." Some culture, huh?
