Grammar Matters . . . even in braille

On a recent trip to my alma mater, I was tickled to find a small sign in braille on the front doors to the building where the English offices are located and most language and literature classes are held.  It was one of the very few braille signs on campus, so it was neat that it was on the building I practically lived in while I was in school there.

Meh. Who needs grammar, anyway?

It’s ironic, though, that the sign on the front of the building that hosts most English classes is grammatically incorrect–this sign says “case hall entrance” with no capitalization of the proper noun.
