Under new manglement.

I am always amazed at the mangling of English. I'm not one of those punctilious people that believes languages don't adapt and evolve. I accept that. What I don't accept is abject, obfuscating dumbosity.

"Brazilian Spanish."

And then, this sentence from an email: "Thanks for your help as we solution and evolve."

I can overlook 'to' and 'too', I can turn a blind eye to 'there' and 'their', but the one that really gets under my skin is 'your' and 'you're'.

Dave, all of those drive me mad.

The maddest of all is what I get when the word "unique" is modified.
