Re: “Mailbag

I'm worried about TW's writers. Last week Bob Grimm mistook the noun "cliche" for the adjective "cliched," as in the movie was cliche. This week, Mark Whittaker writes about the Playground, "Too much was going on and in a very BOMBAST manner," substituting a noun for an adjective. Later in his "Chow' column, he seems to think a verb is a noun , "an ambience of metropolitan RAVISH." WTF? Professional writers? As Chaucer wrote, "if gold rusts, what will iron do?"

Re: “Danehy

Tom, your column about gun control thrilled me because someone actually knew what a gerund was! Therefore, I was disappointed you didn't simply quote the Second Amendment and parse it for its meaning. The sentence is a mess, but no matter how much one is itching to caress the oiled barrel of an assault weapon, it's absurd to ignore the introductory phrase, you know, the mention of a well-regulated militia.

Re: “Guest Commentary

RJ, where do you get your facts? Or, more to the point, how did you reach that conclusion? Those drugs don't cause shooting sprees! They might even have prevented some, given that they're used to TREAT severe mental illness.

Re: “Guest Commentary

Just love Hoffman's citing those assault-weapon toting anecdotes as proof. First, they sound suspiciously fictional--any proof these events ACTUALLY happened? And second, if they are real, two anecdotes don't prove a goddamn thing! C'mon, Jonathan, I thought as a conservative you were a notch above that cretin Charles Krauthammer, but now I'm not so sure.
