GLENDALE ? Senior Taron Sargsyan, an 18-year-old at Glendale High School, remembers the first time he used a computer. ?My first memory were the games, like solitaire and pinball,? he said. ?I played those when I was 11.? Sargsyan helps students and school staff troubleshoot computer problems as the Associated Student Body director of technology. ?I don?t know anyone who goes in depth through the computer system to figure out command prompts,? he said. ?[But] everyone is on Facebook.

'Tis the season for a lot of people to use the expression “tis the season.” And though some folks think this is a tired cliché, I have no problem with it. True, it's far from original. But this famous fragment from the carol “Deck the Halls” can cast a jolly light on just about any phrase that follows. So I don't see any harm in using it to infuse a little holiday cheer into your writing. Yet I do have a problem with “'tis the season” - a very obscure problem that occurs only at the intersection of my work and my computer software.

I got an email recently from a reader whose spell-checker flagged the word “uninvolved” as an error. I'm not sure what software she was using. My Microsoft Word doesn't have a problem with “uninvolved.” But her spell-checker didn't like it one bit. Spell-check programs vary greatly. But there are two observations we can make about spell-checkers that are, in fact, universal: 1. You can't live with 'em. 2. You can't live without 'em. There's no question that spell-checkers can save your hide.

Tuesday was not only the kickoff of the school year, but also the implementation of a new program at Thurston Middle School called the Organizational Wheel. The 18-week program is specifically designed for sixth-grade students. Pupils work in six-week blocks, learning computer basics, organized notebook study and life skills, including self-esteem. Teachers Jason Babiar, Andy Crisp and Leslie Maus are each teaching a different component. "I'll be teaching organizational skills, focusing on one of the most important things -- trying to get organized," Babiar said.

A spelling lesson for grown-ups? When I first started teaching copyediting, I was surprised to find that the class textbook, “The Copyeditor’s Handbook” by Amy Einsohn, had a chapter dedicated to spelling. In the age of spell-checkers and online dictionaries, the idea seemed somehow quaint. Everything we could possibly want to know about how to spell is already at our fingertips. What more is there to say? Plenty, as it turns out. For starters, as you probably know, you can’t trust spell-checker.

I don?t like to discuss risqué topics here. I save that for the talks I give to public schools and church groups. But a radio ad I heard recently for cosmetic surgery has left me no choice. The announcer promised, for the low cost of just $2,900, ?bigger, more sexier breasts.? Lest anyone give the copywriter the grammatical benefit of the doubt, the line was repeated verbatim before the 30-second spot had ended. Most of us know without having to think about it that this is just bad usage.

Last week, I wrote about commas, and there was much rejoicing. But I ran out of space before I could cover all the bases. So to rectify a situation I dub "curl, interrupted," I'm following last week's column on commas with another column on commas. If you recall, last time we talked about these punctuation marks in a few specific situations. (I know you don't recall. Just play along.) But there are several comma situations I didn't talk about, including the one the stylebooks call a "direct address."
