Three Observations About English

1. Offensive tackles are misnamed. Their purpose on is to keep the ball carrier from getting tackled.

2. Women are often compared, sometimes unfavorably, to cats. But if you want to truly insult a woman, call her a bitch.

3. The K sound (as in Kansas) is represented in four letters of the alphabet: C, K, Q, and X.

As long as these differences and discrepancies are around, I'll never get tired of reading about English. Often, I'll write about things like that in this blog.
