Did you know that today--March 4--is National Grammar Day? Neither did I, but according to SPOGG (the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar) and MSN Encarta, it's time to start the festivities. (Even the Prez has endorsed it--as well he should.) How should one celebrate? The Grammar Day site suggests that you try one of these activities:
Speak well! Write well! And on March 4, march forth and spread the word. If you see a sign with a catastrophic apostrophe, send a kind note to the storekeeper. If your local newscaster says "Between you and I," set him straight with a friendly e-mail.
Or you can just buy a T-shirt.
