Varda confesses to being schoolmarmish and tongue-clucky about the abuses grammar takes in so many blogs, but fiercely defends her right to use "Y'all" (even though she's a New Yorker). She also cops to mentally knocking 30 points off your IQ if you pronounce nuclear "nuke-u-lar" and readily admits to torturing her (non-autistic) son about the proper use of language, too.
