You're right Justine--but I think they're starting to catch on. My Soapbox that was published in last week's Dig (Sept. 3 to Sept. 10) never got posted online. So if anyone is dying to read a (I think) quite hilarious rant about the ills of speaking ill, pick up a copy and read "Lessons in Speaking Good: A Back-to-School Special."
p.s. It is actually now online. I guess sufficient whining can get you pretty much anything.
