However will the world keep turning? Click here to read more.

This reminds me of the Lynn Truss book. I'm tough on myself when it comes to proper grammar and spelling but I try not to be too hard on others, especially in the social networking world. It's supposed to be fun isn't it? However, I do feel that public signs paid for with tax dollars should contain proper grammar.
