It’s been almost a year since I last mentioned this, so maybe it’s time for a refresher.
Like many folks, this cat gets it wrong; first panel:
“Like” goes with nouns,
“As” goes with verbs.
So he should say “…as scientists have just concluded…”
For “like,” think of the book title, Black Like Me. Or maybe “My love is like a red red rose,” or what my wife says sometimes, “Beer tastes like dog piss.”
