The English... it BURNS

I'll readily admit that I'm no master of the Queen's English, but I do make an effort to ensure that the words I select for conversation are the correct words to use... words that convey the actual meaning of what I wish to express, not words that I'll have to apologize for later, using a phrase of "Well, you know what I meant, so whatever!"


Not the story, of course. This is a tragic story, and I can't imagine the pain her family must be enduring.

But what caught my eye was this:

... a drunken driver flew threw a red light...

"Threw" the light? Not "through" the light?

Come on, Denver Post... you need to proofread a little better.
