Spend any time on an internet message board — hell, even on a professionally produced website’s editorial content — and one thing will become dishearteningly clear: the number of people in the world who can put together a coherent sentence is dropping by the day.
Grammatical horrors surround us every day: “it’s” where there should be “its”; quotation marks used for emphasis, where there should be italics; comma splices out the wazoo. If we have to read “for all intensive purposes” one more damn time, we won’t be responsible for our actions.
Fortunately, we do have some recourse against grammatical offenses, short of justifiable homicide. As with any movement, the attempt to restore good grammar to its rightful importance requires both constant vigilance and a steady influx of new activist-recruits. Wearing this shirt around should help you get at least a couple of people who see it on the side of truth and righteousness.
