Is this how I'm supposed to be writing?

I give you the following:

By FRAZIER MOORE AP Television Writer

NEW YORK Oct 4, 2006 (AP)— "Lost" settled a few questions sort of while posing many more on the premiere of its third season Wednesday.

Do you see this syntax? This would be like me saying, "I should be starting math sort of but I'm at the computer freaking out over an AP writer's sentence structure."

I'm not a grammar nazi. It's one thing to leave out correct capitalization and punctuation on your emails or text messages. But I've noticed that national publications are getting sloppy, as well. And this is scary. Once the papers forget the rules, you forget the rules, we'll forget the rules, it'll be anarchy!

That's all.

Maybe the writer was so concerned about the issues presented on the latest episode of Lost that his mind was simply too preoccupied to think of anything else.

I know I can't think of much else once Jack graces the screen (I still call him Charlie though).

BTW, I love your new layout. I gots to get me some of that.

I suck at grammar but obvious crap like that annoys the hell out of me.

No, I like the way you write already. The AP is low on applicants apparently. Hey, maybe I could get a job there now! Sweet.

Oh and I love your new look! You changed yours before mine! WOW! Contact the AP wire. The header might read something like

"Here in Idaho sort of has changed its look before the Drama Queen sort of changed hers in a manner of speaking sort of."
