I just got the cutest thing from a friend, it's called "40 Tips for Proper
English". To avoid wasting bandwidth, I'm forwarding just a couple of
examples. If you'd like the whole thing just email me privately.

> 9. Foreign words and phrases are not apropos.
> 10. One should never generalize.
> 18. The passive voice is to be avoided.
> 27. Proofread carefully to see if you words out.
> 29. A writer must not shift your point of view.
