I INSIST YOU DESIST!

I have had enough. This brutalisation has to be brooked. This kind of carnage cannot continue. Why do we commit, collude, conspire and then condone the crucifixion of the English language?

Musings From a Well-Heeled Theatre Person But a First Time META Selection Committee Member!
