Quote of the Day

From Scott Adams, of the Dilbert Blog:

Some of you will argue that education in general is the biggest predictor of success. But I think you’d agree that if everyone started majoring in English, we’d all starve to death with impeccable grammar.

    I agree but for one thing: we’d probably have pretty crappy grammar. Of the English majors I know, the only one with really good grammar works as a computer programmer.

    College English majors don’t learn grammar, they learn to deconstruct pulp fiction and apply Marxist-Feminist theory to 19th century magazine advertising. Linguists, now, they’d actually understand the grammar, but that’s no guarantee to proper usage…
