Favorite Quote of the Day from Strunk & White

 "Colloquialisms. If you use colloquialisms or slang word or phrase, simply use it; do not draw attention to it by enclosing it in quotation marks. To do so is to put on airs, as though you were inviting the reader to join you in a select society of those who know better."  (p. 34, Strunk & White, 4th edition, 2000)
