  1. People often want to argue over the usage of words in our English language. I am saying this because a friend recently asked me about the use of PLEAD in the past tense. It is often used in news-reporting. So, here it is:

    In his usage guide, lexicographer Bryan Garner says, “Traditionally speaking, ‘pleaded’ is the best past tense and past participle form.” Garner has also written a dictionary of legal usage in which he says, “‘Pled’ is an alternative past-tense form that is to be avoided.” The Associated Press also prefers “pleaded”

    Also, I remain an avid supporter of Strunk and White’s “The Elements of Style”, even though some people say it is outdated in several aspects. Example: Thomas’s car rolled into the ditch.

  2. I get tired of hearing the “he is not the typical defendant involved in a violent crime and only had one minor misdemeanor conviction” that’s the dumbest statement ever..every violent criminal doesn’t have one until his first one…that’s like saying he was never caught driving drunk until his first DUI..
