Grammer: Prepositions

There is something I want to share with everyone -- an Ask the Editor video segment from Mirriam-Webster. This video addresses the grammer "rule" about ending a sentence with a preposition.

Apparently, this rule originated from the opinion of a 17th century poet who was lambasting the pervious generation for using prepositions in English in a way that would not work in Latin. The generation he criticized included Shakespeare. I'm sure you can guess whom I would rather emulate.
