Andrea's column: Say it ain't so
Do you hear what I hear? The English language is being mangled by well-educated people who appear to be intelligent until they open their mouths. One of the most annoying examples is news people who drop the "g" at the end of a word.
The worst culprit of this sloppy habit works for a local television station. She reports stories that involve drivin', stealin', and shootin'. I called the station a number of times to complain but no one seemed to care.
