"The biggest operating expense is instruction"

No, say it ain't so.

"President Olin Joynton said. "That's what we heard from our auditors this evening. After a very thorough study of our accounts, they have given us, what in laymans terms would be called a clean audit."

Really? What would they call it in stand-up terms? Better yet, what would they call it in standard English terms? How about a shiny, or non-dirty audit?

"Joynton said he is proud of the work the staff does every day to keep up with the financial aspects of the college, and it is a great credit to their hard work to have a clean audit."

Is it? Shouldn't that be the baseline standard rather than something to be proud of? Is a "clean audit" an unusual thing these days?

"Tonight is a culmination, with the acceptance of the audit by the board, of months of work, really ongoing work, all around with our business office staff," Joynton said.

"It's a great team and they do their work so carefully and accurately. I'm very proud of the culmination and recognition of their work that we reach tonight."

Well, thanks for that, Joynton. Aside from that quote not even making literate sense, the community can be assured that at least a semi-literate is running things there. Congratulations.

"Trustee Florence Stibitz attended a Michigan Community College Association meeting where speakers discussed strategic ambiguity and having an implemented saying with community colleges across Michigan that could be integrated into each community college based on its offerings.

"strategic ambiguity"? Is that a double-word synonym for nothing at all, on purpose? Oh, and "An implemented saying"? What the fig is that? An implemented saying. Wow.

Anyway, great piece. Remember, proofreading before printing, is a little thing that goes a long way. Have Schulwitz proofread for you.

He can add a couple more mistakes. You can proofread his pieces too, and add mistakes to his articles. In other words, you scratch his back to ribbons, and he'll put a monkey on yours.
