You didn't hit a nerve.

Thanks for your feedback, but there's nothing wrong with the grammar or word usage in this story. SALE is the act of making something available for purchase. Try changing SALE for SELL in the story above and see if it makes sense:

"Beginning Tuesday, the government is prohibiting the manufacture, sell or even re-sell of drop-side baby cribs, which have been blamed in the deaths of dozens of children."

It does not make sense, because as you said SALE is a noun and SELL is a verb.

You are also correct that we want things correct on our website. This story is.

Thanks
KEVIN
