Wow. The barbarians are at the gate. In my line of work I get the opportunity to read several press releases from government agencies every day. Misspellings and grammatical errors are rampant. I think, well, the reporters will clean 'em up. Now I'm not so sure. In a few years I figure everyone will be semi-literate. (And I hope R. Berg doesn't find any grammatical errors in what I just wrote.)
