I'm a practicing linguist, FWIW... as a few have said, he was right, or was he? We'll never know, and I'm sure he wouldn't remember--would be interesting to give him a grammar test!

As far as the subject--is it really NONE, or is it KIDS. How much would it even matter? Almost none of us speak(s proper english, anyhow?

It's part of the job of any manager to push your employees to the next level. Give them a little more than what they think they can handle (or are comfortable with), and before you know it, they've gone beyond expectations and are ready for the next challenge. Give an employee an easy job, and they'll eventually sink to that level.

That is the ultimate challenge during a lockout when you're sending NHL level players to a lower league. You have to break out the whips and force them to break beyond the AHL standard to keep them sharp for the NHL game...if it ever happens.
