From the first page of the sports section of today's Chicago Tribune:

Yes, but who is it? The reader must guess.

(In a story about yesterday's White Sox loss) The Sox were shut out 11 times last season, but they couldn't produce an extra-base hit after seizing a 4-2 victory on Jim Thome's dramatic three-run homer in Tuesday's regular-season opener.
This sentence is just a train wreck.

Any chance we can get John McIntyre, professional copy editor, to move to Chicago?
