Thank You

This is an error that drives me wild! It seems that "to lay down for a nap" has pretty much become common usage and though I grit my teeth when I hear it, I find it inexcusable that this and the common misuse of "lay" for "laid" has crept into print and is not being caught by the editors. So good for you for highlighting this very easy to understand grammar rule!
