Hot dessert

OOPS! I just found a sentence that ended "... an entrée, side, drink, and desert." I hope they mean dessert, not desert.

FOUND ONLINE: Riggs has been stunned by the support, especially given the difficult economic times." That might be changed it to "The support has stunned Riggs, especially given the difficult economic times."

It's a more powerful way of saying it.

ALSO FOUND ONLINE: “I can recommend those individuals very highly to whomever is going to be our new head coach,” Wellman said. “Each of them has done a very, very good job in their particular areas."

You can't change "whomever" to "whoever" here because it's a quote, but whoever is right in this case.
