Re: “New Rules: 2016 Laws Affect Drivers, Turnips and Estate Taxes

First panel reads, "Here's [sic] some [laws] you need to know."
No. Incorrect.
It should have read, "Here ARE some that you need to know."
"Some" (laws) = plural.

Re: “A Bigger Splash

"That doesn't hinder an actress of Swinton's prowess from communicating every emotion under the sun. Literally."

Here is yet another instance of the tedious misuse and over-employment of the word "literally." Its true meaning has been wholly corrupted, as writers ignore or misunderstand its actual denotation.
Wouldn't "virtually" or "essentially" be a much better word choice, here?

Re: “Style Patrol: Prepositions Are Creeping Up on Us

The odious, clunky phrases "order off of" and "making money off of" better exemplify your observation of "preposition creep," don't you think?
