SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls man has undergone a double lung transplant after suffering complications from COVID-19.

The Sioux Falls Argus Leader reported Friday that 42-year-old Nathan Foote suffered severe pneumonia after contracting the disease in October. He suffered severe scarring in his lungs. Doctors said he get a double transplant or die in hospice care.

He was placed on the transplant list in February at the University of Minnesota Medical Center in Minneapolis. He was offered two potential matches but both fell through because of changes in the donors’ health.

He finally underwent the procedure April 10. The surgery lasted eight hours. A few days later he took his first breath on his own in six months.

2. could be several explanations

Job market tight bringing marginal applicants. Cost cutting and temp hires. Overseas linguists. All of the above so the raw submissions always look like this but editor is out for the night. Grammar checker on the fritz.

Someone thinks they're doing fine and they did cover the story even as civilized (sivullized?) standards are lowered.

5. This is not a new problem. The local fishwrap and the local stations have had this problem for

decades. And, when I was in San Diego many years ago, the same was true there. I expect better from what are purported to be our purveyors of information.

I have seen the same problem in many novels.

6. That is true, I do see that in novels.

I'm one to read every word if the book is worth it. I often find misspellings, a grammatical error. I wonder, no one proof reads? I think they use spell and grammar check. If I were a very good author, I'd spend the money to have it proof read, or read it myself. It must be embarrassing on some level.

7. For a time, I made lists of every single error in the books that I was reading, and emailed them to

the authors. I never got a response.

3. "Foote says he's still in pain and he's still easting through a feeding tube..."

It seems like they hit "publish" a little early.
