Common Errors in English Usage calendar—a spinoff of the Common Errors in English Usage book, which itself was a spinoff of the Common Errors in English Web site. Ten years is a nice long run, isn't it? I say we take a break after this.
But since I've had time to plan this out, I'm going to do something a little different for 2015. For the next year, every day will rerun a captioned illustration to go with the entry. These will be culled from the first nine years of the calendar.
You'll see in the coming year what a stretch that could be for some of the entries. I have a memory of receiving an e-mail from a disappointed calendar buyer who felt the need to write because she found one of these cartoons so lacking. She objected, but I have to say that the cartoon she found so bad was actually pretty good compared to some of the others, in my estimation.
