    Looks like both are technically correct:

    Only in the same way that couldn't care less and could care less are technically correct - they are both so common that we allow it, even though real people (aka prescriptivists) know better. ;) It's just like that bad writer Fitzgerald who apparently used crescendo instead of forte and now everyone says that the level of interest or noise rose to a crescendo, when crescendo refers to the rise itself.

    I know language changes, and climax used to mean rising action, and whatever. But it's annoying that so many of these changes come from carelessness. I suppose it's probably always been that way. Grumble, grumble. I should stay off the internet...

    I think my new idiom pet peeve is becoming homing signal vs 'hone in' on. I heard someone use hone correctly as sharpen and my jaw literally fell to the floor. (I cut it off and hurled it)

    Or rein vs reign. Damn it. Too many to choose from. Where's the grammar thread?

    I loved Janet voicing her own bings. So sad and funny at the same time.

    Haha... I reported abuse on the two comments where they 1-starred because they didn't read the complete title of the book before ordering. I'm not sure if admissions of stupidity qualify as abuse under Amazon's terms of service though.
