For the seven-millionth time: You can end a sentence with a preposition


"Content" providers strike again: Any writer interested in providing good grammar advice wouldn't tell you it's wrong to end a sentence with a preposition unless he checked his facts first. But more and more, the stuff we read isn't penned by writers interested in providing good information. It's just a mishmash of words assembled by people trying to fill up web pages as quickly and cheaply as possible.

My most recent column tackles a pile of online hooey about how you supposedly can't end a sentence with a preposition. You can. And if the writer of this bit of content had bothered to check his own link, he could have saved a lot of people some bad information.
