Good Grammar Is A Dying Art

All languages evolve. If they didn't we'd still be talking with thees, thous and thines. But what is happening to the English language is not an evolution it is a de-evolution. Pride in one's language is gone and has been replaced by speed, convenience and the lazy desire to type one number instead of two letters. Grammar Nazis (a group of which I am a proud member) abound, but are making no headway as each grammatical abomination is justified with a dismissive "whatever" or "you knew what I meant, didn't you?" Close is the new right in grammar and it makes me want to slash tires and kick puppies (not kittens, though, THEY'RE SO CUTE!)
