    I really enjoyed your presentation… Thanks!

  2. Daniel says:

    I loved the comments on pronoun-antecedent number agreement. I have a newspaper clipping quoting a former Delaware governor as saying, “We also will make sure that when someone becomes pregnant, they [sic] have access to good health care.” After all, it’s important not to discriminate against the obstetric needs of men.

    I would love to have a few of my colleagues listen it to this webinar without having to fly them into corporate. Please let me know when you will be offering another webinar on Technical Writing.

    Thank you for your time.
