Beware the Dangler

Sound advice on dangling modifiers from The New York Times. Be sure to glance through the comments that follow, where you’ll find everything from the moronic (“There is no need of rigorous grammatical proofreading in everyday NYT articles.”) to the sublime (“I look forward to a future column on the collapse of agreement between collective nouns and the pronouns that follow them.”).

Oh, and happy new year.
