It's bemusing that many of those who write so poorly - not so much those whose thinking is muddled, but rather those with real nuts and bolts issues with spelling, grammar, word misusage - insist upon sloughing it off as unimportant or "I'm in a hurry" or a product of their ADD, etc.
Just as "clothes make the man" so their writing reveals more than they care to realize.

I pound and pound on this with my students. Some small percentage take it to heart. I once had a college senior tell me that in four year s college [not a major in my dept] no instructor had *ever* correct a paper she had done except me. Sheesh.

I'm with Joe R, grammar and syntax doth oft proclaim the man. Also, you'll be more articulate the better a writer you are.

I understand that Jeff Bezos of Amazon has ruled that decisions will not be made on the basis of PowerPoint presentations, but rather that the person requesting the approval must write a concise memo of a few pages to argue his case.
