Rubio, Cruz join forces in Nevada

You read it here first. Well, actually not here, but on Yahoo! News:

rubio and cruz news

Senators Rubio and Cruz now have a single, joined “ground game battle” in Nevada for the presidential nomination. I guess they’ve joined forces to fight Trump’s, Kasich’s, and Carson’s run for the nomination.

It seems odd, doesn’t it? Why would they do that? Is it possible that Rubio and Cruz each have their own “ground game battle”? And is it possible that the Yahoo! editors don’t know that would be Rubio’s and Cruz’s ground game battles? Is it possible they don’t know that if something is owned by two people, only the last name gets the ‘S (like Ben and Jerry’s ice cream and Mom and Dad’s wedding)? But if it’s owned separately, each name must get the ‘S?

    Keen catch, Punkin. Sadly, this is not just a Yahoo! blunder. I see this more and more in print and it sets my teeth on edge.

      It’s just one of many mistakes I see every day that set me off. I think that grammar and spelling just aren’t taught any more and it’s the language and readers who suffer.
