I’m Gonna Make A Change,
For Once In My Life
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .
~ “Man In The Mirror” by Michael Jackson
This has nothing to do with sports, but it does have to do with blogging. So if you’ll indulge me, I would like to briefly speak up on a matter I feel strongly about.
Upon finishing a draft for a huge announcement that we will be making here at MSF on Wednesday, I sent it to a few folks to read over. One of these folks informed me that there was a typo at the beginning of the article, saying, “Check in the first couple of paragraphs. There was a red squiggly line under ‘eachother’ because it should be two words.”
He was right. He also hit a personal nerve he probably did not know existed.
I want to state emphatically, for the record, that there is absolutely no good reason the phrase “each other” has not officially coalesced into one word: eachother.
I recognize that the two-word version is officially recognized as correct, but just remember that people once thought the world was flat too.
So how about we do eachother a favor, save a space, and just make it one word. Who’s with me?
Seriously though, if you have a good reason why it should be kept at two words, other than the banal “because it’s always been that way,” please comment below. There may be something I’m not seeing; but as I see it right now, I think it’s time for a change.
