A caption from today's paper:
"Casey Anthony will be freed July 17 after she was acquitted of first-degree murder."
Someone needs to be arrested for this sentence! I had to read it several times because it was so weird. Let's banish the word "after":
"Casey Anthony, who was acquitted of first-degree murder, will be freed July 17."
