"I said, 'I believe [your] are all good people. I have no issue with you," Flynn explains. "And an older gentleman laughed and said, 'They've come to my house.'"
The parenthesized "your" is an elementary writing/elementary editing error (unless preternaturally accurate hearing picked it up from a recording) that one is forced to judge the piece and publication by. Just because the writer happens to be an editor does not exempt their work from rules of the English language.
a few telling quotes from Margaret Sanger who helped found Planned Parenthood:
“Give dysgenic groups in our population their choice of segregation or sterilization.”
-Birth Control Review, April 1932
“Eugenics is...the most adequate and thorough avenue to the solution of racial and social problems.”
-Birth Control Review, October 1921
“Our failure to segregate morons who are increasing and multiplying...demonstrates our foolhardy and extravagant sentimentalism.”
-The Pivot of Civilization, 1922
“Eugenic sterilization is an urgent need. We must prevent multiplication of this bad stock.”
-Birth Control Review, April 1933
“Birth control must lead ultimately to a cleaner race.”
-Woman, Mortality, and Birth Control, 1922
Why lecture on the obvious (naughty words in US culture)when a simple apology for an editorial oversight would suffice. On the ad issue, a scan of your own publication illustrates a bit of a contradiction, i.e. your taking other publications to task for publishing the the sort of images the INDY subsists upon.
As I stated previously, Lisa, perhaps the paper could be better served with a fact checker.
The Geo Metro was a Suzuki Cultus sold under the Geo sub-brand. Perhaps the INDY needs a fact-checker
First of all, "who" felt betrayal, the Metro (made by Suzuki) or the Honda? Your thoughts about cars are common to Americans, who frequently, it seems, substitute their emotional failings with humans with fond imaginary relationships with their cars, the fantasy falling under the category of "Pathetic Fallacy," John Ruskin's term ascribing to inanimate objects "human capabilities, sensations, and emotions."
