Roman Fyseek: God job on 'whom'.Bad job on 'with'
Ennuipoet: Roman Fyseek: Bad job on 'with'Someone had dangled their preposition.
Cyberluddite: With whom did you learn grammar, Subby? I'm guessing the copy editor who wrote or approved the headline of TFA, perhaps.
MaxxLarge: Ever wonder with whom your city dangles its prepositions?
SpikeStrip: Ever wondered whom your city hangs with, asshole?
1000 Ways to Dye: You're all wrong. It's okay to end a sentence with a preposition.
Ennuipoet: 1000 Ways to Dye: You're all wrong. It's okay to end a sentence with a preposition.No.I didn't spend year learning these stupid rules for someone to come along and tell me they do not matter.
Gordon Bennett: They don't. You've wasted your life. Have a nice day!
Tax Boy: so you will know them by their velocity?
GAT_00: Sounds about right here. People move between Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville, but nobody goes to Memphis.
Lunchlady: You could have just posted a map of the Federal Reserve Districts and saved us all the trouble.
Myria: Lunchlady: You could have just posted a map of the Federal Reserve Districts and saved us all the trouble.Not quite that simple, since California and Washington are both District 12. I would guess that it's more of a map of the areas which particular Federal Reserve branches serve. There are a San Francisco and a Seattle office in District 12, which could explain the separation.I still find it funny that Mormonland is its own district - that section is pretty much the parts of the country controlled by Mormons.
neuroflare: I'd say that solid border around AZ, CA, and NV is probably accurate. God knows the people the the western two states go east on vacation, not west, and the only reason to go west from CA is gambling in NV or the Grand Canyon.
pickle65: If I was heading west from CA, I think I'd be a surfer or a sailor, but that's just me.
skinink: Except for a little bit of Georgia and S Carolina, Florida is pretty much isolated. As it should be.
NateAsbestos: This really devolved into a grammar battle? Good god.Language isn't static and there is no such thing as "the" English language. A preposition is a perfectly fine part of speech to end a sentence with. The headline accomplished its goal of "conveying an idea to the reader". You all got it.As for the article's content, yeah, it's just a federal reserve district map.
Kevin72: neuroflare: I'd say that solid border around AZ, CA, and NV is probably accurate. God knows the people the the western two states go east on vacation, not west, and the only reason to go west from CA is gambling in NV or the Grand Canyon.Did you mean east?
neuroflare: pickle65: If I was heading west from CA, I think I'd be a surfer or a sailor, but that's just me.insert correct word east
