Written today for a breakout on tomorrow's features page:
<blockquote><font size="1" face="TImes, TimesNR, serif">quote:</font><hr> Last month (June), yet another of Downes customers won $1.3 million in the Saturday Lotto draw. <hr></blockquote>
I'm not sure what bothers me the most:
That the reporter doesn't know what month it is... the use of "yet another"... or the missing apostrophe.
