I'm here with a reporter from a major national TV network. He is making me cringe every time he says "...between one to three feet" (instead of "between one and three feet). It's not just a slip of the tongue since he says the same thing every time.

Am I too crazy to expect a news correspondent to speak coherent English?

Use a comma before the first quotation in a sentence.

Meh. My wife says I correct her grammar while we're arguing. It's all relative.

You have misused coherent.
