[Rushtalk] Daylight Savings Time

                         32 years ago, I worked on-air for WESA-AM/FM (Charleroi, PA.) and our program director had just graduated from college. He would put memos on the controlroom (think "studio") bulletin board. When I had to sit through network programming, out of sheer boredom, I'd take down the memos and correct the spelling mistakes, then put it back up. There were always a minimum of ten - more, if you count the grammatical errors, as well (he used "me and him" pretty frequently). I was still going to college at night in those days, but glad I went to a better academic institution than a "party" school................

These misuses of the language are like fingernails dragging down the chalkboard. But who is responsible? A couple of years ago, our high school exchange student was asked where she was from. She said “Germany”. The student responded “isn’t that on the east coast?” The same year our other girl was asked where she was from. “Sweden”. The girl rolled her eyes and said “here in the U.S. we pronounce that ‘Switzerland’”.  The fourth year we had students, the high school yearbook had a full two pages dedicated to the exchange students. The article was more than embarrassingly loaded with grammatical errors, usage errors, etc.  the next year our Danish girl wrote the article. She showed it to me before she turned it in - perfect. Don’t expect too much, Dennis. It simply isn’t there.

bank. It is Daylight Saving Time.
