Thanks for highlighting one of my pet peeves. It's right up there with the
misuse of the phrase, "I could care less", when the person means the
exact opposite.I find the improper less/fewer usage particularly
distressing when it comes from people in the media. For example, it's
really grating to hear some bubble-headed TV "news" person talk about
the traffic load by saying something like, "There's less cars on the
road at this time than usual." Something I heard just last week. Eeesh!
