   Maybe showing my age - but "went missing: versus "is missing" - Jeb 
Stuart "went missing" General Lee vs. Jeb Stuart "is missing" General Lee?

Esteemed GDG Member Contributes:
And as a professional proofreader (for the Gettysburg Times) let me agree
wholeheartedly.  We had two reporters who thought the past tense of "drag"
is "drug."  They've been replaced by a recent grad who doesn't know "it's"
from "its."  I had to explain cavalry vs. Calvary to her as a requirement
for being in G'burg.
