For the love of language

The French have L’Académie Française: the language governing board established before when the peasants were told to eat cake. A non binding organization, its members come up with new words, and rule old words irrelevant. If the English speaking world had such an organization, they would likely have freaked out at the state of the the language, especially with the dominance of texting. To all you English teachers and editors out there, rest assured that there are still people who don’t say plz and thnx but please and thanks.
