Embarrassed by you’re grammar

Dear Editor:

On page A3 of Monday’s paper, Carolyn Sackariason quotes Stephen Kanipe as saying “… you got until next Wednesday or your dealing with …” Honestly, I am shocked and dismayed that neither Ms. Sackariason nor your copy editors know the difference between “your” (possessive) and “you’re” (you are).

It’s especially embarrassing because that particular quotation occurs twice, once in large font, and again in the body of the article.
