    Re: placement, bumped article

    Either an article he wrote or an article about them was in the newspaper. There were many other articles that could have run there but the paper considered theirs important enough to make it a priority over the others.

    In the future, please do not post profane words, even in direct quotes.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Barb_D, thanks for answer. I'll take into account about profane words.
