Editing/Writing Tragedy for 12/17/07

I’m all for phonics. I learned how to read and spell that way, after all. But we all know there are words that are spelled a bit differently from the way they sound, especially if we’re mispronouncing them in the first place.

For example, I’m listening to Christmas music on an Internet radio station that has on its playlist the following: Parade of the Wooden Solgiers.

No. No, no, no, a thousand times no. Just … no.
