Quickie Post: Food for Thought

Imagine my horror in reading about grammar rants reflecting racism and class bias on the part of the peeve-holder. Do others view my entire blog as an expression of deep-seated intolerance? Am I a closet bigot?

Thankfully, I read the linked lesson (that’s an Adobe Acrobat .pdf file, so if you can’t open one don’t click the link). Rather than chiding me for being an awful person, the article praised grammar rants like mine as ways for students to learn. They also show readers not only that others will judge them on how they speak or write, but why. Whew!

I hope that I am providing a useful resource for folks who enjoy language, both reading, writing, and speaking. Take a look at these pages and let me know what you think!
