Life in the Arbor is a children's book about Rollie Rabbit and his friends (on about a fourth grade level). The Black Widow involves an elaborate extortion scheme. Doggy-Dog World is my memoir. And ES3 is a description of my method for examining English sentence structure.

Korea & GOP Dummies
And, by the way, I hope I love long enough to see Hillary Clinton as the next U.S. president. Or any other woman, for that matter. I want to see the end of senseless racial and sexual discrimination. In the meantime, I want to underline what was recently reported by Grammarly regarding the grammatical intelligence of those people who commented by Facebook on the various candidates now running for president. Here’s how they did it: A random sample of 180 comments (all negative comments first filtered out) on each candidate’s Facebook page were examined for grammatical errors (misspellings, punctuation) and then calculated on the number of mistakes per 100 words. Republican average was 8.7 errors per hundred, Democratic average was 4.2 per hundred. Fiorina and Clinton were tied at 6.3. And the winner (or loser?) on either side was Trump, with 12.6 errors per 100 words. I guess that must say something about the intelligence of those who would support The Donald as our next president.
