As an editor, certain things really irritate me.
Case in point: "The instructional staff is second to none...."
Well, if you are second to none, aren't you really FIRST...so how about if you just say that the staff is the best. Or first rate. Or something that makes more sense than 'second to none.'
You can't be second to NONE. "None" means nothing. There is nothing there. So you're really first.
It's like "needless to say"...well, if it's needless to say, then don't say it.
OK...that's my mini-rant for the day.
