Just back from vacation, I have a copyediting challenge for you. It is from a small sign in our pleasant Washington, D.C., hotel room. A sign with this message sat on the windowsill:
Due to the Preponderance of Mosquitoes in the National Capital Area, we ask that you only open the windows in case of an emergency.
Would you make any changes to render the message more clearly, concisely, and correctly? Please share your revision.
Happy July 4!
