Ditto Jeff

My hero Jeffrey Ford has a blog, so I think I'll have one, too.

Note that I typed "my hero Jeffrey Ford," not "my hero, Jeffrey Ford." As I'm always trying to explain to my students, leaving out the comma makes the appositive non-restrictive; while Jeffrey Ford is my hero, he is not my only hero. There are, indeed, others. I'll mention them here, from time to time.

Hurrah for my heroes Jeff Ford and Andy Duncan for having blogs. Welcome to the blogosphere.

Welcome, Andy! It's nice to see you on the Internet. Also, thanks for the grammar lesson; I think I have been reversing that rule from time to time...

Welcome, Andy! As near as I can tell, the blogosphere grades on a curve, so you don't have to worry about comparing your blog to Hero Jeff Ford's blog or anyone else's. (grin)

And I've already learned more about the Maryland anthemn than they've ever mentioned during the Preakness coverage.

Hi Andy! It's great to see that you have a blog (I'll have to, whadda they say, syndicate it over to LiveJournal to make sure I read you regularly).

I hope you two are well.

Best,
Chris
