"Specious Condo" May Explain Why This "Unite" Is Still On The Market

Would anyone even consider this real estate purchase after reading the ad? With thousands of condos in the DC Metro Area to choose from today, the owner of this one might as well hang it up.

726 sq ft, as well as specious? Quick! Get the checkbook. Not.

Reading the DC real estate ads these days is like watching They Shoot Horses, Don't They? Inventory has quadrupled, prices have tumbled, and ad writers are getting desperate. And sloppy.

In other words, flippers are flipping out as interest rates rise and salaries remain stagnant, and those who need to sell because of relocation (or some other family reason) are pretty much screwed.

I like your blog, Delilah. It's as demanding about the proper use of language as it is emphatic about your politics.

Communication is going to become harder and harder as the ability to use the English language deteriorates.

I've seen those types of grammatical errors in the articles of major newspapers.

"Went missing" is my favorite bowdlerization of the language lately. How a southern colloquialism entered the English language is beyond me. Just faddish illiteracy that enters the media world at times.

Not only is it ungrammatical it wastes the perfectly precise and concise word 'disappeared'.
