Criminal Sentence 351: Grammar Giveaway

In honor of National Grammar Day on Thursday, here's a Grammar Challenge.

The person who corrects Criminal Sentence 350 in the best way (judged by me) will win a free copy of The Curious Case of the Misplaced Modifier by Moi and The Grammar Devotional by Mignon Fogarty.

Send your rewritten sentence, along with your contact info, to The deadline is midnight (MST) on Thursday, March 4, and it's one try per e-mail address. If more than one person rewrites the sentence well, the first-received answer will win. I will choose two runners-up, who will each receive a free copy of The Curious Case of the Misplaced Modifier.

Criminal Sentence 350:

"As a product marketing manager, keeping a pulse on what the competition is doing is critical."

Hint: I like good subjects and good verbs.

Good luck!
