“It uses it's clout…”

This is how an article begins in today’s edition of The Economic Times. Egregious mistakes are by no means confined to Indian publications alone. I find them often in American publications of repute as well.

I wish a reading of "Elements of Style" were made compulsory.

This is what Bertrand Russell said about religion...

Religion is based, I think, primarily and mainly upon fear. It is partly the terror of the unknown and partly, as I have said, the wish to feel that you have a kind of elder brother who will stand by you in all your troubles and disputes. ... A good world needs knowledge, kindliness, and courage; it does not need a regretful hankering after the past or a fettering of the free intelligence by the words uttered long ago by ignorant men.
