Jesus is not my vaccine, nor is He my Editor

  • “Shutdown the shutdown,” another sign in Maryland read.

Well, it’s probably not a matter of life or death, but let me offer this bit of advice to refugees from the Maryland public schools:

Shutdown is the noun form. Shut down is the verb form.

You can shut down (two words) the shutdown (one word), but it doesn’t make quite as elegant a sign at the protest.

Of course, it doesn’t seem that elegant is what you’re going for.

On the other hand, if you’re going for an agonizing premature death, which you’ve accidentally inflicted on yourself — or others in your home or community because you were a symptom-free carrier of the virus without realizing it — and either way, you decided to help shut down the shutdown, then yeah, you’re right on target.

In which case, forget the English lesson. Rest in peace.
