Public grammar failures

Hi!

This one I just love (seen in the San Francisco Chronicle, 2004-01-03):

    Mission officials said that means that if time permitted before the Martian dusk, the rover could start snapping pitchers of Mars late Saturday night.
This type of problem is so very typical of the lack of care shown by the SF Chronicle. Of course, this story actually came across the Associated Press wire service, so it's very likely that many newspapers will have this same typo embedded in them come tomorrow morning. Oh, well.
