Prescriptivist Descriptivist Fight!

I was going to go with PDF! as the title, but I figured none of you would click on that. Even with an exclamation point. Who wants to hang the browser, or launch a hellabyte download?

Anyway, a very fun piece by Joan Acocella, from a few weeks ago due to my dead trees reading lag, in The National Review.

Sure I am. Reading the NYer piece, came to the "fuck" part, & wondered if it had anything to do w/ this.

P.S.: Your RSS feed may be fugged up. Just got a mess of posts dating from 25-28 June in Google Reader. (Or maybe they're on to you.)
