I have the feeling that it's part of a general sloppyness in society,
caused, I think, bu the decline of the education system and by specific
education doctrines which hold that educating the child's psyche is more
important than making him or her learn rules.

Now that I'm an old-timer at the bar, I find a distressing increase in the
sloppyness of legal filings and even judicial opinions.  With the latter,
it often is a result of the fact that courts are overworked and
understaffed.  But even so, the willingness of anyone to pay attention to
getting things right seems to be declining.
