Writers, here’s your invitation to join GRONE! It stands for, Get Rid of Near-English. When you find examples of sloppy, innacurate, non-grammatical constructions in something you read, send the quote and the source to me at jreed@writerswelcome.com
    Just like that, you’re an official GRONER.
    Together we can save our language from the dumbing-down, rounding-off and screwing-up of English. (Other languages to come later, as I learn them) So join the crusade, read carefully, report accurately.
   This post is dedicated to Ludwig Wittgenstein, the Austrian philosopher who said, “The limits of my language mark the limits of my world.”
    Now get out there and widen your world and WRITE AT ABSOLUTE TOP SPEED.
    Hasta luego.
   John
