Re: “Unnecessarily unnecessary

There are other instances in the English language of jarring, but that never negates the rules. "Range" is singular.

Re: “Four points on Associate Justice Courtney Henry

Re: “Words: Is The Heights singular?

I enjoy reading your column, but I have to comement because you have made a reckless assertion. Standard English usage is never based on what sounds right. One would not say, "The Heights are an expensive place to live." This is clearly referring to a singular place.

Re: “Bill to ban plastic shopping bags

I am suspicious as 50to49 is about why the Honorable Mr. Altes is filing this bill. Conflict of interest?
