    Do you think anyone reads what they write before sending it out.

    These days even the newspapers need more proofreading.......and how about some of the english in conversation......or on the TV?

    I wonder if the kids today know that there is the nominative case and an objective case and when to use which and why???

    I cringe when I hear "me and her" went shopping !!!!!!!!!

    Makes one wonder, doesn't it?????

    Do they even teach English in schools anymore? At least it was called English when I went to school, who knows what it might be called now!!! Thanks Ditter for the morning chuckle.
