Letter: Candidate's ad fails grammar test

Negative campaign ads in Maine are often controversial, as they may insult our collective self-image as a state of fair play.

The recent attack ad on Les Otten by Bruce Poliquin hits a new low, not necessarily in politics but in grammar.

Fewer of us seem capable of distinguishing between "less jobs" and fewer jobs. The effect could affect future grammarians.
