On Affect and Effect (sigh)
As was pointed out to me by a recent commenter, I have once again fallen prey to the deadly affect/effect error. I corrected my last post after finding this very useful guide.
I recommend clicking the link at the bottom of that page, as you'll discover hundreds of other common English language usages that folks (even former English majors like myself) mess up every day. It would behoove anyone writing more than a quick email off to granny to slap this up in Favorites and review often.
