Going Nucular

Richard Nixon once said, “…when the President does it, that means that it is not illegal.” Well, that might be true of wire-tapping without court-approved warrants, but I’m almost certain that it does not hold true for grammar, punctuation, and pronunciation errors.

Speaking of presidents, although former President Bush consistently pronounced the word nuclear as nucular, the word is pronounced noo-klee-er.

Enough said.
