WOW. YOU REALLY CAN LEARN STUFF FROM READING THE NEWS

In today's entry for "Actual Yahoo! News Headline of the Day," I present you with the following, straight from an article by the "AP Education Writer":
High School Dropouts Earn Far Less Money
Even though this is one o' them "book larnin'" stories, I won't get pedantic on your asses and rail about the incorrect grammar in a sentence using the comparator "less" without offering the other side of the equation. You know, "less money than . . . high school graduates." Or "less money than . . . drug dealers." Or "less money than . . . the 'AP Education Writer.'"

Oops, I just railed, didn't I?
