Prose Woes: Grammar Tips

In fact, people who correct other people’s grammar in casual conversation are more of a personal pet peeve than people who can’t remember the difference between “your” and “you’re.” There is no reason for everything to read and sound like a terms of use agreement. I believe in liberally exerci... »
