It's your language. You use it every day. You should strive to master it. My late mother, a 27-year, graduate-level professor of English, embedded that in my brain once upon a time. I’m not nearly as smart as she was, but I’m sharp enough to recognize that the vast majority of native-born Americans can’t speak or write English worth a lick.

No Espeeka The Eenglish
So posted some dumbass who calls herself jedimasterwendy (aka Wendy Higgins) in an internet forum. I won’t post a link to the forum, but I will send you to the online petition she urged everyone to sign (my signature is #249): happy reading. Not surprisingly, she doesn’t possess anything close to mastery of the language she so yearns to see become legally official.
Here’s a link to her Myspace page if you want to see some more grammatical blunders. Though most of the content isn't surprising, her claim to be a college graduate is.
