Rose, who just retired in Salt Lake City, asks...
Hi--the other day on TV, President Bush said "internets". Isn't there just ONE internet? Also, when I looked up "internet" in my computer Encarta service, the word was capitalized! Is "Internet" correct? Is "internets" correct? Thanks very much! Rose
Anne answers...
Yes, President Bush is wrong. Yes, there is only one Internet. And, yes, the word is capitalized. Are you going to tell the President or should I?
