I wish our public school teachers would set at least one goal for their classes in all grades... Teach the difference between 'then' and 'than'. I see these two misused more than any other words in these columns and reader posts. Then is an adverb indicating time: First there was one, then there were two. Than is a conjunction indicating comparison: Bill is taller than John. Why is that so difficult to understand?

And obviously schools stopped teaching the difference between THERE and THEIR a long time ago. Even middle aged people confuse the two!

Harold, I suppose it depends on how you define the word "is"? :-)

Dear Comrade Boy Georgia,

You’re right about Obama wanting to bring taxes to historic levels, although like most liberals you don’t understand what you are saying. Still, rest assured, if you did understand what you said about taxes at historic levels, you’d be for that too.
