The editorial page editor needs a simple lesson in English grammar. In the fourth paragraph of the Feb. 8 editorial, "Tax break packages," the writer says, "But a lack of state tax incentives are hurting Georgia recruitment efforts..."
The word "incentives" is not the subject of that sentence; it's the object of a preposition. Lack is the subject. Hence it should read, "But a lack of state tax incentives is hurting ..." James J. Kilpatrick would shudder.
