March 4th is National Grammar Day! Now, it's only the sixth year of this universally important holiday, so it's especially important that grammar snobs join together and nurture this young celebration. We must foment superior communication and word snobbery, no matter how unpleasant it may make us at social gatherings. But why does grammar matter? And perhaps more importantly, why does it need a day? Shouldn't we be using good grammar every day? Well, yes, but people aren't. In this age of texting, of truncated language, of abbreviated meaning, we few -- we happy, snarky few -- must hold the line. As King Theoden lamented in The Two Towers -- and I'm paraphrasing -- "What can men do against such reckless word abuse?" Plenty!
