Ever get the impression that illiteracy is a bigger epidemic than Aids, Ebola and the bird flu combined? Seriously, can no one spell or use punctuation these days?
Just one example: grab a copy of your weekend newspaper (the Regina Leader-Post will do quite nicely), and count the number of times an apostrophe is inserted when it shouldn't be. Car ads are especially brutal. Obviously the folks approving the ads at the respective dealerships are either really busy, or really ignorant. How's this gem: "We have lot's of great deals..." Oh really? You have deals belonging to Lot? The guy from the bible? Since when does an "s" at the end of a word automatically qualify for an apostrophe in front of it? The functionally illiterate - darn worthy Pac's Rats if you ask me.
Just stuff I think about in lieu of watching the Leafs in the playoffs.
