As I stated earlier, this is the most poorly written, God-awful mess of a review I have read in a long time. Hancock should be utterly embarrassed. It reads like he had a thesaurus sitting next to him, and was consulting it for exactly how many "big words" he could cram into a given paragraph.
As man of you here know, grammatically incorrect writing affects me like nails on a chalkboard.
I am not as much of a stickler as Shades, particularly when it comes to message board content. However, in formal, published writing, there is absolutely no excuse.
Let me just get the most glaring mistake out of my system, and then I will begin a commentary on the content:
I have to say I had hoped for more substantive discussion from such sites; but my recent experience suggests that, although surely not all principals on these blogs are fully committed lifestyle liberals, they are not at all inclined (or equipped?) to risk the wrath of the “hard left” among their associates and readers.
(bold emphasis mine)
Really, Hancock? You don't know the difference between a principal
and a principle
? You or your editor couldn't have caught that one?
