How my father-in-law would have enjoyed this article.

I suppose I'm a Strunk/White/Fowler man, except I've been lucky enough to grow up surrounded by literate types and then I returned to Hong Kong where it was senseless to push fluent English when one was surrounded by gazillionaires who simply rented people like me if they needed the right word or accent.

Thence to the US of A where one can get mighty unpopular playing the English Major card, but still no big deal ...

Then Corfu 2010 when and where I discovered the Corfu Grapevine and as quirky a minority of mean muthas as one could never hope to come across on this gentle isle.
