Try putting two spaces after each period. Makes it much easier to read this crap.

FOR THE LAST TIME. There is a DAMN SPACE after you end a sentence HOW EFFING HARD IS THAT to FIGURE OUT? Really man.

Back before computers with scaled fonts you did TWO SPACES after a period or question mark. <<<<<< See look ONE EFFING SPACE. How the hell hard is it to figure that out.

again in modern writing there is a space between words and there is a space after a period or a question mark ending a sentence.

Here is a site that might help you a little. I doubt you can read at a high enough level to understand most of what it is talking about though.

I am no grammar king but good god damn man. The space bar is that big giant key at the bottom of your keyboard.

I just heard that Christina Aguilera has been picked to sing the National Anthem at the Stupor Bowl.

Is it just me being disgusted when some "pop singer" embellishes the National Anthem with notes that were not written in it? I don't care if they're some supposed super star, just sing the melody as written. I sent a very nice letter to Mike Rowe (of Dirty Jobs fame) when, during one of his "jobs" he was asked to sing the National Anthem at the opening of a local baseball game. He sang it, as written, and I thanked him for doing so.

Yes, I'm an old fart who thinks that if you can't sing a song as written, you have no business singing it.

I don't mind some embellishments if they're done well. The problem with most pop stars don't have enough talent to win a 1st grade talent show. Let someone who can actually sing dress it up and I don't think you would mind it as much. Let Wynonna Judd have a go at it and see what you think.

I'm with you, it's one of my biggest pet peeves. Sing the damn song the way it was written. It's a hard enough song to sing as it is.

She did a great job, but the camera work almost made me hurl.
