I occasionally misspell words; just check out my blog page! However, the level of incompetence in "professional" correspondence is increasing.

SWMBO is an English major and has to deal with this more than I. She works at a college and you should see the spelling errors in college catalogs. You would think colleges would be more particular about their printed material but errors are rampant as are incorrect use of word tense and punctuation.

"Lets eat Grandma." vs "Lets eat, Grandma." (Commas save lives.

None of this is new but the rate seems to be increasing. Standards are being lowered. Not good, IMHO.
