Taking solace in the brilliance of Mark Liberman

I’m dealing with my crushing disappointment by alternately allowing myself to mourn, and pushing it completely aside. In order to do the latter, I’m keeping my mind occupied with RSS feeds.

I wanted to point out yet again that I love Mark Liberman. Lately he has posted about the new grammar tests on the SAT, leading him to a more general discussion of the “theory of mind”, and then back to how current grammar tests are flawed.

Hell, I don’t know if he’s “brilliant” so much as he thinks like me, reacts like me, and writes like me. Regardless, indulging myself in his stuff always brings me a smile.
