Bio
Rose Ann Robertson was a newspaper reporter and wire service editor for 20 years, editing and directing coverage of plane crashes, natural disasters and national and state elections. She has been at AU since 1993. She is a former president of the Washington, D.C. chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists. Although Robertson does not profess to be a grammarian on the caliber of Strunk and White, she is eager (not anxious) to teach students the power of the language, hates the verbing of nouns and cringes when she sees offers of a “very unique free gift.”
