& du this jour, too

So, I pick up the Vicad this morning and the first line that falls under my wondering eyes reads, "The third man, who's age was ..." Once again, my emphasis. That's not a typo; it was made 'who's' on purpose. Miz May Kirkman shoulda taught them better back in the 6th grade. You gotta consider that those words were written by a reporter who would no doubt haughtily assert her literacy and then vetted by an editor and a copy editor and I guarandamntee you those folks believe themselves experts on language. Tsk, tsk.
