Thanks - another well written item. Knee jerk reactions from entrenched positions do more harm to our public discourse than anything else. It's so sad when commentators bunker down in well worn ruts and fire predictable volleys to get people onside as they sagely nod in agreement. Ah, so it's the death of the dictionary, the death of language, the death of education, the death of spelling, ad infinitum, ad nauseam - so many deaths - and yet life goes on, and the new generations - god bless them - continue to add interest and vibrancy to our world.
