Sine of the Times

The front page of today’s Metro section of the Dallas Morning News has a series of photographs of billboards, posters, and signs found throughout Dallas — all with glaring spelling and/or grammatical errors. A generation of our people have scraped through our public schools and have entered the workforce without knowing how to write (or spell, or read, or balance a checkbook, etc).

Clearly, something in our education system is broken!

More to come….

  1. One other thing to consider is that some signs/ads INTENTIONALLY misspell words (perhaps they think it is cute). A good example is “lite” instead of “light” or using a z instead of s for a plural. That really annoys me. It isn’t cute. It’s lazy and promotes ignorance.

  2. You’re in reality a great website owner. The website loading
    pace is incredible. It seems that you’re doing any special trick.

    Furthermore, the contents are a work of genius. you have performed a fantastic
    task on this subject!

  3. Hi I am so excited I found your webpage, I really found you by accident,
    while I was looking on Aol for something else, Regardless I am here now and would just like to say kudos for a incredible post and a
    all round enjoyable blog (I also love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all at
    the minute but I have bookmarked it and also added your RSS feeds, so
    when I have time I will be back to read a lot more, Please do keep up the superb
    work.

  4. I had been honored to get a call from a friend as he found the
    key guidelines shared on the website. Browsing your article is a true wonderful experience.
    Many thanks for considering readers like me, and I wish you the best.

  5. When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added”
    checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get several emails with
    the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Many thanks!

  6. Whilst training within the BMW Group there
    is restricted source of information accessible to accomplish this and also the person manager trusted implementing their very
    own. Whenever you setup a person price range you happen to be just installing an plan to pay for
    your dollars with intention as opposed to spending it aimlessly.
    On the other hand, the greater funds it can help
    you save, better rewards your business will get.
