Another day, another Star-Tribune comma error -- right on the front page.
Read this: "A clerk calculating Sara Jane Olson's prison release failed to read the entire, voluminous transcript of her sentencing hearings...."
The comma between "entire" and "voluminous" is unnecessary. Would Joni Mitchell call her song "Big Yellow Taxi" or "Big, Yellow Taxi"?
Obviously not. The "entire voluminous transcript" would make more sense, or, simply drop the "entire" because your audience knows what "voluminous" means; the "entire" creates a redundancy.
And I'm feeling redundant sending in these corrections so often. And I'm only noting the most egregious instances. Please find a way to improve or motivate your editing personnel to minimize the errors -- the Star-Tribune is not a small-town newspaper. I don't "mail it in" when I read your newspaper, but it seems like your editing department mails it in too often.
Honestly, an error like the above is outrageous for a major newspaper!
