George, another possibility is that she is just one more example of the general decline one sees (and hears) in good grammar, even among educated people who spent more than a little time in the classroom, memorizing the rules and practicing proper presentation. I'd hate to think it is a case of someone 'dumbing-down' their presentation ..... which is a dumb thing to do.

Jeff, that's a possibility that I didn't consider, but if you think it's possible then it's certainly worth considering. If that is the case, though, it's a little like spinach on the front teeth. It's telling that no one has felt comfortable enough to correct her.
