It's National Grammar Day Eve!

I came across this requirement in a National Geographic job posting. It made me laugh! Pity the hiring editor who has applicants who don't know this.

The editor must be a skilled copy editor. If you cannot explain what is wrong with this sentence, please do not apply for this job: "Strolling through the field, the grass brushed against my toes."

And for you people on TV: It's not, ever, "Between you and I." Dammit. It's "between you and me." Think objectively. Get it?
