If someone has to drive to north of the 91 Freeway to work – this is a mute point as the tunnel is no help.

The correct word is "moot," not "mute."

I see this error all over the place and it bugs the crap out of me.

Just wanted to get that off my chest.


Hey Whipple:

You need to squeeze the Charmin a little more often. It helps calm the nerves when you see the word mute used instead of moot.

But, I agree that fracturing of the English language should be forbidden in all posts. Especially on a quality blog such as this one.

Keep up the good work.

What kills me is when educated folks (and I've even heard newscasters do this) pronounce the silent 'T' in "Often." Hellloooo, it's silent!!

Litte makes me go from interested listener to thinking, "You're ignorant" faster.

Oh-sorry, probably the incorrect forum for rants on English. Besides, I have my own English usage problem areas.

Traffic issues between OC and IE will not end. They will continue to worsen in OC as El Toro, Ladera, Talega, and the rest of O'neill gets built out. Not to mention as Fallbrook and North San Diego County move closer. God help us if the Feds ever close down Pendleton and all that becomes available for development!

While I think traffic in both OC and IE will continue to increase, I believe the number of commuters between the two counties will lessen as those in IE find work closer to home and as businesses relocate to attract the IE labor or to acquire additional lands and buildings.
