More Grammatically Correct

I’ve always had doubt about our educational system in the Good Ol’ United States. The fact that they call it the “Good Ol'” anything should be a hint.

It doesn’t worry me so much because they realize it. It just worries me that so many people won’t realize that.

Who’s Suffering Now?

I’m going to let you know up front, this post is born out of my own ignorance. It concerns a subject that is sensitive to many people and, so you know, I’m on the side of the women on this one. I have no problem with the movement I am about to talk about, I would have been in favor of it if I were around when all this happened. I do not want it reversed.

The words in question, in my mind, are “Sufferage” and “Sufferagette.”

To make sure everyone’s on the same page, Dictionary.com defines dystopia as “an imagined state or society in which there is great suffering or injustice, typically one that is totalitarian or post-apocalyptic.” I would like to upgrade that definition. I don’t think it’s an imagined state. I think we’re there.
