For some reason my theory students got hung up on whether it was grammatically incorrect to end a sentence with a preposition (it is not). I was trying to explain the concept of grammar as the logical structure of the language, not as a collection of school-marm prejudices.

The rave about Strunk & White over at Language Log is hilarious. Who knew the author of Charlotte's Web could give such poor advice?
