National Grammar Day

OMG yesterday was National Grammar Day! I've been sick, so I have an excuse for missing it. Anyway, here's a fantastic post from Painting the Grey Area on literacy privilege. Literacy is not tied to intelligence, and "bad" English is not the result of laziness: "the idea that there is only one right way of doing English – and everyone else is doing it wrong – is inherently flawed. And by 'flawed' I mean illogical, elitist and even oppressive."
