My name is Alan Rutkowski. I graduated from the University of Colorado in 1966 with an MA in Russian and from the University of Denver in 1970 with an MA in Library Science. I worked as a Slavic Librarian at the University of Alberta from 1971 to 1999. After taking early retirement in 1999, I taught communications courses in the Business Program at NAIT. Twice a year I teach a grammar and writing workshop  at the University of Alberta, Faculty of Extension. I also do freelance editing. I have published numerous articles and Op-Ed pieces in the Globe and Mail and for three and a half years wrote a weekly grammar column for the Edmonton Journal. I currently live in Victoria, BC.

    1. To assume is to suppose something to be the case without proof.

      I assume Donald Trump secretly wants the Democrats to win.

      To presume is suppose something is the case based on a probability.

      I presume most Republican supporters of Donald Trump have IQs roughly equivalent to their hat sizes.
