I hear "people lie, hens lay" in my sleep, but I'm also for Elmore Leonard's advice, "When proper usage gets in the way, it may have to go."

Just another example of the abuse of the English language by a semi-literate population.
You are probably going to get some comments by your readers who will say "I could care less", which is exactly the opposite of what they think they're saying (which, obviously, should be "I couldn't care less"). Isn't it just as easy to learn proper grammar as improper?
