An open letter to Nate Beutel

Dear Nate Beutel,

I just took a glance at your article on the N-W school board on the front page of today's edition.  I'm very concerned about a number of things in your opening sentence:  "It's going to get a whole lot easier for board members, school personnel, community members and yes --- even members of the media --- to get their hands and eyes on board of education materials from the Niagara-Wheatfield Central School District."

While the words make perfect sense, I'd like to correct some punctuation and capitalization mistakes (with notes in parenthesis).  Ahem.  "It's going to get a whole lot easier for board members, school personnel, community members, (you missed the comma) and yes, (a comma, not a dash) even members of the media (no need for a dash here, either) to get their hands and eyes on Board of Education (it's a proper name, thus it should be capitalized) materials from the Niagara-Wheatfield Central School District."

I'm just a blogger, so I could be wrong, but I just thought I'd let you know how I would write said sentence.

-Sincerely,
Joseph Kent 

This entry is written in response to the article "Board info on the Web" by Nate Beutel of the Niagara Gazette.  I tried to post it on the Gazette facebook wall, but it contained too many characters.
