NY Times grapples with grammar gripes

A Data By Any Other Name?

I just discovered an interesting department of the online NY Times that deals with grammar and usage gripes sent in by readers. Some of the Times stylebook usages get under the skin of readers who either favor AP or learned certain usages in school long ago and can't let go of them.

Let's face it: fashions in word usage change. See some of the Times' current usages here.
