As far as strict structural grammar questions are concerned, one of the age old favorites is the split infinitive. This is a great example of an artificial rule that ignores common usage and is based on the opinion of someone lost to memory. “That is something up with which I will not put,” Winston Churchill is reported to have said on the subject..
Is sufficient to note that although the two offenders played no direct role in the killing of the two victims, they clearly and knowingly played roles supporting the undertaking, Cullen said.

Laura Ziskin, a founder of Stand Up to Cancer, who has since passed away from breast cancer, read a copy, made a cold call and said, “Look, I think that this would make an incredibly important documentary film, and I want to do it.” [Ziskin was a movie producer whose credits include the Spider Man films and Pretty Woman.] Two weeks later, I received a second phone call, from Ken Burns, saying that he wanted to convert it into a film.

And yes, he did play that unranked listicle of an earworm (“119 factoids only ’60s kids will get inexplicably defensive about”), which, in the age of the algorithm, feels prescient in its remorseless flattening of history into a stream of disconnected news items. With Bernie Goetz now as distant a memory as Georgy Malenkov was when Joel’s novelty hit topped the charts, that song summoned up an earlier age, just as the self conscious doo wop throwbacks Joel performed, “The Longest Time” and “Uptown Girl,” were meant to when he released them. Each song Joel played felt like a memento of the 20th century tucked inside a time capsule, and the 20th century seemed like a very long time ago indeed..
You know that I have lied and worked hard to incite fear and intolerance and to capitalize on it politically. I have seduced your believers and made myself their Great White Hope, even though I am not one of them and never was.
