Once Again, Texas Leads the Way

Girl catches Disney's grammar error - UPI.com: "A Texas fourth-grader who spotted a grammatical error at Florida's Walt Disney World said officials wrote back to her saying the mistake would be corrected.

Hannah Estes said she was waiting in line with her family for the Primeval Whirl at the park's Animal Kingdom when she saw a sign counting down to the ride read 'one seconds,' WESH-TV, Orlando, Fla., reported Wednesday.

'Because I learned in Ms. Bennett's class that a singular number can't be with a plural word, and so that's what it was, and it wasn't right,' Hannah said."
