These are a few of Mr. Rewrite's favorite things



Here's another video blog from Mr. Rewrite -- and another one featuring some of his favorite misspelled signs from days gone by.

You'll find all of Mr. Rewrite's video blogs, such as they are, on his YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/irewrite. There's a link at right.
