Abstract

I missed the memo that changed noun-verb agreement on nouns formerly defined as singular i.e. "staff," meaning more than one person, as in "the staff are." When did it change from "the staff is"? Who decided on this change, and why wasn't I notified? I'm making light of this issue, but I'm perplexed. PS. Grammar check didn't get the memo either District Judge Marilyn Leonard.
