    I wonder what the spelling and grammar Nazis would think about that.

    I remember back in the 80s, I was working with university students, I would proof read their letters, talk about poor grammar and spelling.

    Love the pencil behind Rory’s ear. So old school :-)

    : D Me, too! And Rory would look so cute with one of those green editor’s visors. But that would be redundant in his world of texts and tweets…

    Rory has a point there, sadly.

    The State Board of Education in Kansas is considering whether cursive writing needs to be taught. I guess penmanship isn’t relevent anymore.

    Don’t call them Nazis. If you met a real Nazi you wouldn’t be so flippant. Compulsive Grammarians are uncouth, without etiquette and selfish.

    Whether cursive or typed, young people applying for a job today need to realize what a paper written with bad grammar and poor spelling can mean: At a glance the reader would decide they don’t have the education for the position.

    I’m a draftsman. In my field, the abbreviations and correct words often drive the spell check feature of AutoCAD crazy. However, proper spelling and grammar is still very important. Misplaced puntuation, misspelled words, and poor grammar structure can adversely affect the cost and outcome of a project.
