For those not familiar with the reference, Grammar Girl is Mignon Fogarty's awesome blog on the more idiosyncratic parts of the English language. I highly recommend it: It's a fun, interestin' read on language 'n learnin' 'n lingual luminations. <--This sentence would get me in trouble over there.
In fun news, Drive -- our Saturday SciFi featurette -- turns one this week!
I really want to thank you guys for letting me try this new experiment: The encouragement has meant a lot.
