More Copspeak

DeSoto County trauma patients can be choppered to either Tampa General or Lee Memorial, Blosser said, and six to eight patients are flown out in a typical month. When weather makes it impossible for helicopters to fly, Blosser said EMS can usually get a patient to Lee Memorial within an hour by ground.
That's what a reporter wrote in this morning's paper. And no, it's not a direct quotation. That would have been colorful. Once the writer paraphrased, however, it was time to restore the language of the land.

Don't click for more; I can't top this.
