NOTABLE & QUOTABLE

You spend three or four years studying at university. That’s 10% of your entire career time of 30 or 40 years! And then you see a lot of these bozos unable to write properly or have basic language skills. Then you see English majors who can’t tell if YOU have high enough control of the language even while you’re speaking or writing to them — makes you wonder if they really majored in anything other than Brain Damage. *Sigh*
