Description:
Mitchell takes examples of bad writing and rips them to shreds. While some would think these mistakes don't really matter, Mitchell insists that they do, because they are revelations about the mind that wrote them. Thus examples of bad writing that come from "educators" are given special attention; if educators have twisted minds, what can we expect to have happen to their charges?
