I just saw this somewhere and it sounded really good. I might just hold on to it.

The English Language

December 28, 2007

I know only 3 people will read this but what the hell is wrong with our English language? I didn’t major in English, nor do I claim to be semi-educated on proper grammar, in fact, I had poor grammar in elementary school, but I’ve have something to say about the fact that practically any word can be changed to a verb by adding “able” to the end.

My case in point, MSN.com has a headline today that says, “2007’s most hateable people and teams.” What about “most hated?” Can’t that work. Another example I hear is “personable.” Is it to much to say, “Joe has a good personality,” or “Joe is a friendly guy?”

Speak with dignity and authority.

Wait and See

A good summary of Idaho Republicans from the Associated Press 8/29/2007.

“Idaho Republicans possess a fiercely independent streak, characterized by a healthy dose of libertarian values and distrust of the federal government and the media. They generally hold deep religious beliefs and conservative social values.”

Fall Out Watch… wait and see. Some reporters might actually know the party or the state pretty well. We’ll wait and see.
