>From CNN: "Rhode Island has become the latest state to try and fail to pass
legislation that would put pressure on President Donald Trump to release his
tax returns ahead of the 2020 presidential election." I think I would have
put in some commas - to try, and fail, to pass - or parentheses or dashes or
something, given that half the world or more says "try and" instead of "try
to."
