Quotable Quote

From a student's essay about obesity:

American society today moves at a very fast paste.

My first thought was tomato paste.

My first thought was almond paste--it's more fattening.

Hmmm... interesting. All of my encounters with paste have brought me to the understanding that paste, if moving at all, is slow.

Spell check in MS Word doesn't do them a bit of good if they type the wrong word. What they need is a clue to how to use the dictionary.

How long before Microsoft comes out with context check?

M, I thought the same thing!

Tony, If that happens, it will be checking our sentences to make sure that we use politically correct language.

Why think for yourself, when someone else will do it for you?

That sounds like upper management to me.
