This issue has turned a normally polite and friendly forum into a nasty,
face-scratching free-for-all. It has been difficult to stay calm. We have
moved out of linguistics and into politics and maybe religion.
It is interesting that our local paper (the Milledgeville _Union-Recorder_)
devoted the whole editorial page today to the issue--without my column,
which will probably appear on one of the days reserved for community
people. I guess I should prepare for some foul responses.
So why does this issue get so emotional? Why does my grammar class for
English-education majors get so emotional? I guess we're all idiots armed
