Give That Woman a Crappaccino!*

My pal Theo pointed me to this WSJ Law Blog piece on Sharon Nichols, founder of the “I Judge You When You Use Poor Grammar” Facebook group. The group’s stated mission is to document bad grammar, and to date almost 5,000 photos have been uploaded for that purpose. One example: a rather large tattoo claiming “You Bleed Just To Know Your Alive.”

Nichols, a student at Alabama Law, was also covered last week in The New York Times Fashion & Style section, which I found a bit odd–does good grammar ever go out of style?

Wall Street Journal: Wordie a "Time Waster"

Not Me

Aaron Rutkoff had a piece about Wordie on the front page of yesterday’s Wall Street Journal Online. He writes the “Time Wasters” column, naturally.

He nicely captures Wordie, I think, and points out that the site began as a bit of a joke. True enough, though I’d like to add that I do, at this point, take Wordie a little bit seriously.

The only bummer: they didn’t do one of those hedcut stipple drawings of me. If they had done that, it would make me take Wordie, and myself, very, very seriously.
