Grammar, we love you

Just a very short note in case you are interested in the ways of internet linkage. I was looking on the BBC website just now (if the link is still there, it’s, and, also if it’s still there, you may see the link in the bottom rhs of the page.

It reads:

Times Online Lonmin shares take tumble as problem child furnace is shut – 8 hrs ago

Disappointingly, the grammar changes as you go to the link:

Lonmin shares take tumble as ‘problem child’ furnace is shut

All of which is a bit of a shame. Those of us with problem children might not ever want to put them in a furnace, but every now and again it might be nice to use as a threat.
