About About The War On Words
A monthly column in which we attempt, however futilely, to defend the English language against misuse and abuse
By Bob Yearick, March 2021

“I am not one to email editors but after discovering your monthly column today, I could not resist.  I have found a comrade in arms!  My pet peeve is the misuse of me and I.  I find myself yelling at the television on a regular basis, “it’s me, not I!” My kids would be happy to confirm that for you.

Now I am not going to say that I have perfect use of the English language because I do not.  Apparently, I have a problem with the use of still and yet.  Again, that would be from my kids, but they may be right. However, I do strive to do my best and I have an issue with people in the spotlight speaking incorrectly.  Listen, Oprah, they did not give it to Steadman and I!!!!!!  It is like nails on a blackboard for me.

So, thank you for your column.  Now that I have found it, I will be looking for it every month.  I think I am going to have to check out your book as well. A new fan.”
