Stuff White People Like: #99 Grammar 
6th-Aug-2008 10:01 pm
 Oh, dear, I am so very, very white. I can go on at length about the serial (or Oxford) comma, and have a very firm and carefully reasoned stance in favor of it.

... If you wish to gain the respect of a white person, it’s probably a good idea that you find an obscure and debated grammar rule such as the "Oxford Comma" and take a firm stance on what you believe is correct. This is seen as more productive and forward thinking than simply stating your anger at the improper use of 'it’s."...

I hope you don't mind but I am going to post this particular link on what white people like in my journal...giving you credit.

Enjoy your lunar eclipse.

I am one of those people who have gotten in trouble for my english and grammar on live journal many times. English was not my first language. I was born and raised in Singapore and studied three languages. Can't say I have mastered any three grammar wise but got by.

Came to the US in the early 70's.

Anyway, enough about me, I was just so thrilled to have found that link.

My Spanish is still pretty . . . entertaining.
