Welcome to the PIT List!

I'm a network field producer who also worked in local tv as a line producer and field producer. Over the years, I have had the great fortune to work with super people. Now I'd like to pass along what I know and rant a tad.

Flashback to English Class

I hear this one on t.v. newscasts all the time. It makes otherwise smart people sound really dumb.

Please complete with the correct verb:
=One of these guys (is/are) going to jail.
=Two of these guys (is/are) going to jail.

When in doubt in terms of subject/verb agreement, drop the prepositional phrase to figure it out. So... "One... is going to jail..." and... "Two... are going to jail."
