Just a couple out-of-context examples from a Portland, OR TV station website today:

"Tucker was the youngest of four sisters, all three of whom are still alive."
"The bill prohibits officers from pulling people over for minor violations, like a single taillight, headlight or break light out."

Anybody remember that obsolete concept called proofreading?
