For the Want of a Hyphen, the Meaning Was Lost

Here's a great example of a missing hyphen. Wish I'd seen this when I wrote my recent post on hyphens and commas.

Screen snap with words PRODUCTION OF LIFE new line SAVING GENERIC DRUGS
Wait a minute, there's a Canadian bill to enable production of life?!

I love Boing Boing guest blogger David Ng, but he really needed to insert a hyphen there.

And the missing comma in the headline is not so good, either. The bill equals killing period?
