A comment on comments

Every now and then (but not frequently; my blog isn't well-read because there are no pictures of Paris Hilton or Posh Spice) someone e-mails me about something I wrote in my blog that she disagrees with. To date, however, there's only been 1 comment about any of my posts, and I wrote that one.

So, if you have something to say about anything I have to say, say it in a comment. That's what they're there for. Or would be, if they were there.

Hey, Michael, thanks for commenting on Grits. And as a writer I'm all for Grammar Snobbery, so I'll keep checking back now that I know about your blog. best,

Woo hoo! My first comment! Thanks, grits! Everyone should read his blog, by the way; it's far less frivolous than mine.

This seems appropriate for people who write/read about grammar. It is FUN! Who knew? Answer: Michael knew.
"For every rule, there is a good reason. Usually it is also a very interesting reason.You may feel surprised when, as you probably will, you discover that you can get much fun from grammar if you tackle it in the right way and in the right spirit. In the rules themselves -- and in learning them -- there is fun." Eric Partridge, English: A Course for Human Beings 20 (1949).

Hey Michael!

I liked your comment over at Grits.

You seem like a thoughtful, decent guy.

A thoughtful decent guy? You know I'm a lawyer, right? :-)

But thanks for reading, and thanks for commenting.

"You know I'm a lawyer, right?"

Yes. I do.
