Is this sentence grammatically correct? If not, can anyone tell me why it isn't?

Thanks much!!

Sentence: At least you can string a complete sentence together, which is more than can be said of some college-educated people these days.

I'd change 'said of' to 'said about' or 'said for', like this,

At least you can string a complete sentence together, which is more than can be said about/said for some college-educated people these days.
Casi,

Thanks for your suggestion. However, I know that 'said of' is grammatically correct. It's the rest of the sentence I'm asking about. I'm 99.9% sure the sentence is correct but a friend doubted it.. we have to settle a betEmotion: wink
Try,

. . . but a friend doubts it's correct.

Man, I'm so glad I'm not so anal!!
Try,

Man, I'm so glad I'm not so anal!

One exclamation mark is sufficient.

All the best,
Just to be anal!

1. I think "said of" is ok, as is "said about". Not so sure about "said for", though.

2. Yes, one exclamation mark is sufficient.

3. I would write: "At least you can string together a complete sentence, which is more than can be said of some college-educated people these days."
