    “I’ve always thought an English teacher could offer bonus points on the final exam if students could do a word diagram of any sentence from one of his stump speeches.”

    That would be a cruel, sadistic exercise in futility. More fun, maybe: Points for showing how he departed from English grammar.

    It would be almost impossible to find someone more toxic for the nation than the current Pee-resident. So yes. Anyone but. On the other hand, while we’ve got them all out there talking about what they want, how they’d do it, what their plans are, it seems like a great opportunity to narrow the field a little bit.

    I also get the Hax articles online, where the illustration (if any) is much smaller. So this is where I go to see it “up close”. It’s almost more fun to figure out what Hax’s subject matter is from the illustration than the other way, though.

    Every time I re-read something longer than a few pages, I find another error (or at least infelicity). This is remarkable, because every time I find such a thing, I fix it. And yet a few weeks or months later, when I re-read it, there’s another one. It has to be some kind of evil word-processor devil.

    In order to have a happy life, a married man must master the art of discussing such issues with his spouse. After many years of practice, I have amassed the full list of vocabulary words that are important in this endeavor. Herewith, for your delectation:

    1: “Yes” (you may also use “of course” or very occasionally “Mmhm”)

    2: “Dear” (any other pet name that she likes will also work)

    That’s the full list.
