I have questioned the obituary editor of our local newspaper about the sentence consistenly used in the featured obituaries. Namely: "The funeral is 2:00 Tuesday." I suggested that the sentence should read: The funeral is scheduled for 2:00 Tuesday." The editor has told me that the English grammar used by newspapers is not the same as taught in schools and that the paper needs to conserve space.

Am I behind the times on this one?
