The first a should be jettisoned from the above sentence in "Undercover officer targeted impaired driving suspect" on CBC News online on June 16, 2010. Later in the article,
the writer decided, for some unknown reason, to put an apostrophe-S at the end of Alexa Middelaer's first name and last name. The article was last updated two minutes after noon on Wednesday (yes, the errors survived at least one update); it's now past five p.m. on Friday and the errors remain.
This is infuriating
