Car salesmen are grammatically regressive. The confusion of less than/fewer than can be solved by means of measurement: generally, if it can be counted, use fewer. If it is measured more abstractly, as in volume, use less. i.e. Fewer people. Less milk. One exception is time, as in “the opera was less than three hours.” And money, as in “our family and friends discount will save you less than 500 dollars.” Why? Maybe because time and money are social constructs? Also, I remember being accepted into St. Olaf College as a woman, Sue Jan Stevens. Imagine my surprise when they sent me a list of dorms from which to choose.
The case of the missing comma and/or coordinating conjunction and/or Oxford comma. (A line break is no excuse.) Otherwise there is a movie out there called “You’re Next The Blair Witch Project.” In which case there is still a missing comma (i.e. direct address). Basically this is a lose/lose situation. Although the use of “who’s” is correct, thankfully. And I’m VERY interested in a movie called “You’re Next, the Blair Witch Project!” (Lower case articles in titles unless they begin or end the title). (editor’s note: I’m very aware that titles of movies should be italicized but I’m crazy for “quotes” right now, so deal.)
