Having just read your post, I feel compelled to shout, "Brava!"

Yes! Thank you very much! It's not that I want to be bad. It's that I don't know how to be good. I'll be checking the sites you mentioned and reading your post again. Thanks again!

Oh! Oh! I just finished listening to my first Grammar Girl podcast! I'm hooked. Fun, funny, instructive and I don't have to get headaches from trying to read with these glasses.

The dangling modifier has a long distinguished history since Chaucer. Most of them go unnoticed because the meaning is clear. I'm with Pullum: they are so common that they must be grammatical.
