Fail moar!

September 5, 2009

Oh, annarbor.com, you continue to fail SO HARD:

“Should 30 million dollars be spent on private development of retail spaces or should it be spent on developing a better high-speed retail system to and from Saline and Chicago and electric trolley system for local districts in Ann Arbor?”

The structure of this question makes me want to bleach my brain. The first part is okay. It’s straightforward and easy to understand. The second part is where the author of the question lost at grammar. My guess is that they didn’t intend to suggest a “better high-speed retail system to and from Saline and Chicago,” because seriously, Saline’s retail system is on life support. Unless, perhaps, they meant a “better high-speed rail system?” But that doesn’t make sense either, because 1) there isn’t an existing high speed rail system in place to begin with, so “better” is out of the question, and 2) the only rail system in Saline is a truncated service line that runs to the old Ford Plant.

So maybe the author meant to suggest upgrading the existing rail system between Chicago and Ann Arbor and adding local electric trolley service between Ann Arbor and neighboring municipalities. And I say this only because “electric trolley system for local districts in Ann Arbor” does not compute, Will Robinson.

Dear god. My niece could write better copy than that, and she’s only a senior in high school.
