Lede of Tuesday’s Boston Globe editorial headlined, “World Cup: Boston shows its international face.”
[Can the hardworking staff take just a moment – or two minutes – to bemoan the interminable load time of the online Boston Globe? Thank you.]
Back to that lede:
Walking around downtown, Boston’s international character is barely visible.
Putting aside the misplaced modifier or dangling participle or whatever “Walking around downtown” is (Word meister Jan Freeman: Help!), the hardworking staff found the next sentence even more convoluted:
So Mayor Menino’s plan to broadcast the World Cup finals on City Hall Plaza — and the explosion of interest in the tournament, replete with costumes and flags, at downtown sports bars — is a welcome expression of the city’s makeup.
The headscratching staff hereby applies for the much-needed position of VP/Grammatical Chiropractor at the Globe.
