For those who know me, this has long been a complaint of mine - The failure to proofread or have a vocabulary containing words of more than three syllables. I once thought this was a localized issue due to the rural area of Minnesota in which I lived. But even after moving to a large metropolitan area, I see the same thing. Everywhere you turn, there are signs misspelled on gas stations, in front of stores, on television commercials and even during the news. I know we intentionally dumb down our newspapers to a fourth grade reading level, but do we really need to do it everywhere else?
Then you see things like this on television.
