Lately I've seen a lot of people using the non-word "alot" a lot. If we're going to admit "alot" why not also admit "afew", "alittle", "abunch" and "anumber". If I can write "I have alot of ideas" I should be able to write "I have acouple dollars," and "I have abunch of grapes." Just a nother in along list of pet peaves of which I have more than afew. --gary
