I'm reading the Wolff book

Last edited Wed Jan 17, 2018, 05:53 PM - Edit history (1)

and so far no surprises--it's all been reported. But I have been appalled by the poor editing, and I'm not talking about fine points of grammar. On page 127, the winner:

"Bannon was making his first official pubic appearance..."

ETA Yes, I'm ten years old.

1. My guess is that nobody uses grammar check anymore because it's a waste of time. It takes too long

chasing things that are not mistakes, and cannot decipher between actual mistakes like pubic and public. That's the reason I don't use it.

6. Just for the record. I NEVER want to think about Bannon's pubic appearance.

But if it's true that some people feel the need to compensate as an explanation for certain behaviors, I'm sure anyone exposed to it was safe unless they had a magnifying glass.
