Why go out of your way to drag up dirt and comment on it now?

    I'm not really particularly interested in chasing people down with a red pen though, so like you I have no idea why you're on that point. I mostly comment on grammar when someone literally writes something like, "Your two stupid to bother with." Then I have a habit of noting that if you're in the midst of a high-handed dismissal you might want to run a check on how you're doing it.

    That sort of thing.

    But the mistake was in not erasing "did", the tense being addressed else.

    Now if grammar is a point of interest for you...

    1. Avoid using a passive voice whenever possible. Passive verbs make your writing less direct.
    2. You could remove this without impacting the other choices. It would actually make the writing clearer.

    He used a very old quote in an off-handed quip that fell flat. It wasn't an attempt to be or say a serious thing. Was it in poor taste? Sure. Would he like the moment back? I'm betting he would. Have most of us said something we wish we could unsay? Of course we have.

    Is much being made of little? Yes. A lot of people were upset when they learned about his affair in 2009. Strangely, most of them weren't morally outraged by his not being married to the woman he stepped out on...life, people. Go figure. That was 2015. What's happening this year and with people who are actually in a position to impact the popular culture? Letterman is already an afterthought. That's how it works.

    It has long (1) that Sci Fi was readying/urging us to embrace the future. Some felt that future to be the wishes of some men more so than any (2) natural progression and I think they were right to a certain extent. You can start with H. G. Wells and work forward.

    Okay, happy now?

    I wouldn't read too much into it. Those that make a living pretending to be witty on a nightly basis must often reach from time to time. I hear the money is good if you're not too concerned what you are paid to say.

    Ah ... but you so often do when stripped of a defensible rhetorical position ... and I guess that would be my point.

    Wait...if you do it...but if I pick back...one of us is confused.

    More seriously, try the parsing approach. I've never understood it as complaints go, but it has some traction. I'm not really a grammarian around here unless someone tries the high hand and blows it during the approach...and that's just funny.

    No, actually you routinely gripe about grammar ... usually when you've run out of rhetorical ammo. That is okay. We each have our quirks and I'm not suggesting that is inherently bad. Actually, I enjoy the things that make us different. I would hate to be in a world populated by nothing but me. That said, one of the few opportunities that we have to get to really see ourselves is through the eyes of others.

    Do with this one what you will.

    Another aspect of your online participation that I have noted is that you seem to suffer from amnesia when confronted with past offerings and want others to remind you of what you have said ... and I don't think you are old enough to offer that for a defense just yet in the court of public opinion or the Big One. I'm not your Court Reporter but you do have one. Something you might want to consider ... or not. Up to you.
