http://www.grammarphobia.com/qa is a site I visit on occassion for my own education. The Q & A list is just one feature. #32 I sought because I saw a poster on this board use the phrase in question. #33 is actually a question I sent to the author by e-mail and got a personal response, I bought her "Woe is I jr" for my daughter's english studies, and really even an adult might find something useful in it.

We used to have a poster that would launch a word of the week, or some other etymology related topic.

English is an evolving language, the only ones not evolving are the dead languages. One died last year as the last person speaking it croaked.

btw, # 32 was the phrase 'I couldn't care less' vs 'I could care less' for meaning you don't care

the answer surprised me, they are equal. I would have argued with the teacher or professor about that, but as I said the language evolves.

Now that John Kasich and Ted Cruz have dropped out, it’s pretty much official: Donald Trump is the 2016 Republican nominee for president.

The pundits never saw this coming, but they should have. The Republican Party has been running a scam on its base for decades now, and voters were bound to discover this scam sooner or later.
