Steve, this blog had better start getting better. I was grading papers yesterday and wrote the wrong their/there on one of my student paper comments. "They're" [the 18 tiny freshmen; I am down from my original 21] starting to get to me, and worse yet, someone else (my Brian) had to point this out for me to notice.
I had coffee this A.M. (in my grandmother's letters she always reports on her current day, the weather, etc., by saying "this A.M.) and am feeling blissful.
Bob Yeager always said that if you read trashy writing, you would start writing trashy sentences. Is this true [of student papers? See above.]
