“Much More Ready”

In response to this comment excerpt: "Also consider that 'NotAGrammarSnob' stated that a person is either competent or not competent. Clearly he and his mother learned this one somewhere good."
I just want to interject that I'm a woman. (A woman who grew up being called "Little Miss English Teacher" by most of her eye-rolling friends...) Anyway, thank you all for the interesting (and surprisingly heated) conversation sparked by my post.

My mother once took offense to a teacher calling someone "very competent." Her reason was, simply, a person is competent or not competent. I guess the same could be said here. One is either ready or not ready. Just ask anyone who is getting a child dressed for school!
(My mom found a new grammar gripe every other day, by the way!)
