    Please due knot judge me to harshly four taking three and uh haft months two reed this 119 paige book It was lost four too of those months aft her my rug rat nieces and nephews visited hyding under a char , butt eye eventually found it again All so, eye was just reeding it as eye wiled aweigh minuets hear and their and had other books witch eye was reeding wythe a porpoise going on at the same thyme.Ok, ENOUGH with the homophone near homophone fun Was it as obnoxious for you to read as it was for me to write James J Kilpatrick was the editor of my local paper years ago, and one of the things he did was put out a grammar column on Sundays that I enjoyed His talent for wordplay is superb, and he was always an enjoyable read in the dailies as long as you could stomach his politics Since he and I are both conservative, I handled him just fine, but it was his prowess with the English language that truly impressed me.In this book he gives examples of errors found mostly in newspapers and magazines, and then he rather ostentatiously corrects them Pretentiousness is a quality that should be found in any self respecting grammarian, and he exhibits the quality with flying colors...
