English majors with too much time...
Some people have to get a life... It's a cartoon. Its funny because these people take it so seriously.

Re: English majors with too much time...
I am alert to uses of grammar and punctuation myself, and I don't think it's a matter of having too much time on my hands. It's just something I notice among other things.

It was funny to read how they worked out to whom that "muskrat" reference referred. I had not noticed the use of water animals in the previous strips. And no, I don't think they were taking it all that seriously.

Re: English majors with too much time...
I wouldn't survive without the grammar checkers and spell checker in the office suites. Yes, grammar and punctuation has suffered in the internet realm, but when things happen in a second or less, we all make mistakes. I always marvel where Gary Trudeau gets his inspiration, but he has fun taking shots at the establishment.

Re: English majors with too much time...
Although I am a grammar freak, I never expect perfection in LJ posts or in emails. I consider these types of posts to be "on the fly" and mistakes are to be expected. Mistakes, of course, are different from just plain improper use, and sometimes I will mention these but rarely. Usually I let them go.

Trudeau really extends his reach, brings in so many references. I think that's a lot of what's fun about his strip.

For some reason I haven't felt like posting. Partly because I am trying to put together some slide shows of things I've been photographing lately and my slide show program won't do what I want it to do. I would like to have the trout show done before writing about the trout here, so I can link to it. Similarly with the trail system.

Oh yeah, and then my sims are having a lot of babies lately. Babies take time.
