As I turn into the Grammar Police

In the article AOPA Online – House bill could terminate flight service station modernization, AOPA President Phil Boyer is quoted as saying

“It’s incredulous that in an atmosphere of concerns for FAA funding, more business-like air traffic operations — and wise use of taxpayers dollars — that Congress even considered, much less accepted, this amendment”

I wrote to AOPA this morning and said

I find it simply INCREDIBLE that a person whose position requires clear and accurate communication would misuse the word “incredulous” so badly. I am simply INCREDULOUS at this misuse of the language.

AOPA’s response was great:

Paul: Thanks for pointing out your incredulity with our incredible web site article.

I promise: We’ll do gooder next time, irregardless of the grammer problems we’re having it with.
