So there, I have now let National Grammar Day pass without comment. I made a point of using a lot of center-embedding yesterday, though, and marked past tense of all strong verbs by string reversal instead of ablaut.

It was a rough day in Wisconsin. Folks are reeling over Brett Favre's retirement from the Packers, and kinda of at a loss to think of his backup, Aaron Rodgers, at the helm. Still, Joe reports that Favre wasn't even mentioned during his trip to the barber yesterday — it was all politics, weather and politics.

More seriously, Gary Gygax, creator of the Dungeons and Dragons (and other games), passed away in Lake Geneva, southeast of here. I never played D&D and know it mostly from jokes about it, and hearing fans talk about it.
