    ... ending sentences with a preposition. I give up. You've all convinced me that it's OK. So screw proper English.

    Feel free to drift into something else that you're not going to apologize for.
     
  2. I'm not the least bit sorry for lots of stuff- hopefully more as the evening progresses/degresses...

    Ending a sentence with a preposition has never been improper.
     
  20. I wonder if anyone has ever thought that the above is an ungrammatical sentence in English?
