A symposium on grammar

Western Michigan University's Department of English will address "the controversy on teaching grammar." I had no idea there was a controvery, but that explains some things.
Time: 6:30 p.m.
Date: Tuesday, April 13
Place: 10th floor of Sprau Tower, WMU, Kalamazoo

I love this part of the press release:
Noted grammar teacher Harry Noden has described conversations about grammar as being similar to "stepping between two opposing 350-pound NFL linemen just after the ball is snapped."
I think some people felt that way at the ACES conference.
