Erkel letter: Lack of logic

Carolyn Trino’s correction of another writer’s usage of “me” instead of “I” was, grammatically, correct. However, she then concluded that one person’s (presumed) age qualified as grounds to take an entire generation to task for a lack of education. Perhaps some statistics and logic classes, along with English, would have taught Ms. Trino something about sample sizes. A group of one cannot be cited as a logical example to deduct a lack of education for millions. Next time she’d like to paint such a large group as lacking education, some foundation for her conclusions would advance her argument. And sorry, but you won’t get that in English, either.
