    As an former English teacher, what worries me is the huge number of people (many who will claim to have college education) who will NOT notice the mistakes.

    I never correct grammar on the internet with one exception: when someone else corrects grammar. Then I’ll comb the corrector’s post for every mistake I can find, and quote it back with “[sic]” after every error.

    Most of the errors in today’s strip are not grammatical issues, but incorrect spelling.

    Language purists are just annoying. They try to follow every BS rule in the book, like not ending sentences with prepositions. I have a correspondent who writes awkward sentences just to avoid endpreps (Sorry for the new portmanteau word purists. Heh, heh.), and berates me for using endpreps. I ignore her.

    I was very careful to use correct grammar on my dissertation. I am not trying to impress anyone, or get them to give me a degree on this blog. I am having fun. Looking up a word to be sure it is spelled correctly isn’t fun.

    The English language is one huge mistake. If someone had been actually trying two do it wright, we wouldn’t have too figure out how two reed and right write and language instruction could be completed in about to years.

    The real irony being that people in western PA leave entire words out of their sentence and say things like “I need to go bathroom,” or “needs trimmed.” What happened to ‘to the’ and ‘to be’? Have fun in Harassmentburg, man
