    It is to be hoped that you will learn about 'hopefully' and 'it is to be hoped.' Or maybe not! I certainly did in my time as an English major.

    Is bad grammer the great career killer? For many people it may very well be, but if you’re a redneck, stand up comic it only enhances your career.

    Not if you read editors' submittals of online articles. They are rife with errors!

    Hopefully, all the misguided prejudice about this one adverb will begin to dissipate. Notice that the very next paragraph of the story begins, "Anecdotally, I've noticed the same trend...." Fortunately, the AP recently withdrew its prohibition of "hopefully" as a sentence modifier. Mercifully, such adverbs need not confine themselves to describing the mood of the writer at the time of composition. Thankfully, they can equally correctly apply to the author's attitude about the subject.

    Nobody's perfect. As long as we understand each other you'll know what I mean. I'm O K and your O K. May be you could say I'm nobody your nobody there is understanding. So the big question is. Who do you think you are, Anyway?
