Foolish grammar

Those Motley Fool folks may know investments, but their grammar could use a little brushing up.

This line is on the end of a Yahoo Finance story from the MF gang:
Shannon Zimmerman is the lead analyst for the Fool's Champion Funds newsletter service and doesn't own any of the company's mentioned. The Fool has a strict disclosure policy.

Make that companies, and I'd trust them a bit more. (A check of other stories on the MF site shows a steadier hand at the grammar tiller with the correct spelling.)

Our paths crossed as I was editing that. Thanks for the outpoint, however.

What is the rationale of your blog title of "Common Sense Journalism," rather than "Common-Sense Journalism" or "Commonsense Journalism?"

I wanted to be different and have "Common Sense" stand out.
