Every once in a while, I like to dedicate a whole column to answering your grammar questions. Of course, this is difficult when you don't ask me any grammar questions — when my "in" box is as deserted as Paris Hilton's prison cell.
So, like all desperately neglected lonely hearts in our society, I turn to the one, the only almighty source that can offer a soul comfort in a time of need. That's right, I'm talking about Google — the place where typing in one's own name has become a national obsession and where learning there's no fan site dedicated to you is spawning a mental health epidemic.
I start by typing in "stupid grammar question." I include "stupid" for several reasons: 1. "Grammar question" alone tends to take me to academic sites, where no one's really asking a question; they're hypothetical; and 2. I'm better at answering the stupid ones.
