I confess that I listen to commentators on the local and national news 28468709_2041757266059531_7545516633563502096_nwith English teacher’s rabbit ears: Do their verbs and subjects agree?  And their pronouns and antecedents?  And can they spell?

Every grammatical error I read burns my professionally-tuned senses!

Am I an agent of the educated power class?  Or should the commentators know better?

I suspect they should know better, because they had teachers like me.
