A nice article on Strunk & White came out in the Washington Post: A Little Book Bursting with Write Ideas (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/09/05/AR2008090503728.html). The article also gives the link where you can find the book free online.

Yep, a good reminder that I need to review Strunk and White again. It's been too long. :)

It's an annual ritual for me. And every time I read it, one of those little gems slaps me in the face and I scream "D-OH!", knowing I have one or two pieces out in circulation that very minute with that particular error in them. :tongue

I have a copy here. While settling my daughter in college, I saw an illustrated version in the school bookstore. Nice pictures!

ooooh! The illustated version? I've never seen it, but I had read that they were making one. Cool!
