    "It was clear if the actor was home at the time." KTLA, you continue to make horrible grammatical mistakes on your reports. It seems like you don't care, because if you did, you would not allow this mistakes to be reported. It makes me wonder who is doing your editing job. Give me the job, and I'll make sure, this won't happen ever again.

      Yo Joey, if you wish to apply for the job of editing, you might want to edit your own stuff first. That would be: "this mistake" or "these mistakes." I am sending you back to Basic English 101.
