    The most recent rules of Grammar

    It is now a grammatical error to make reference to any natural death without prefixing the clause with the word "sadly".

    It is also incorrect to speak of an accidental or criminal death without an announcement that the friends and relations are in our minds at this distressing time.

    Both usages were originally optional and depended on circumstance. That is no longer the case, they are now obligatory and consequently meaningless. Not conforming is on a par with saying "him went out" or appearing on live UK TV in early November without a poppy.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.
