I’d seen this story in the different paper so I knew what the headline meant, but this is what I saw this morning:
What is missing is the “at.” That is, “Two British tourists shot at in Kosovo” It seems a couple of brits were wandering around western Kosovo in a car with Belgrade license plates on it. Their car got shot at, but they were unhurt.
I too “condemn” the shooting, but somewhere there is a friend or tour guide that needs a good thrashing. They sent these two out into the wild country with a big sign saying, “Shoot me first” plastered across their car. Dumb.
It’s the little things in life that make the difference…like a missing preposition or the wrong license plate in the wrong place.
