Is Today the Day the English Language Officially Went to Hell? :-(

A smiley-face emoticon was used on the "front" page of the New York Times today (in a story about when "tweets" tend to be happiest). My mom has been complaining about the dumbing down of the U.S. language for years, but today may just be the official beginning of the end.

(Sorry Ken, in advance.) But I guess that depends if you give any creditability to the NYT.

Like your mom, it's been making crazy for a long time. In my ti=own, there is actually a sign that reads "No Turn on Red Between 7 AM to 4 PM." When did 'to' replace 'and?'
