English R.I.P

Being perpetually behind in my reading, I just now caught up with this Sept. 19 column by Gene Weingarten on the untimely passing of the English language.

A moment of silence please.

I'd laugh, if I weren't crying so hard.

Actually, I was laughing after this sendup video about usage by the Guardian's David Mitchell. (Mentioned by one of the commenters to the Weingarten column.)

Mr. Weingarten is in the advanced stages of crusty-old-farthood.

But it's a fun read.

I present it as no more, no less.
