How did the scarecrow know

Money talks - but credit has an echo.
A psychiatrist is a person who will give you expensive answers that
your wife will give you for free.
Dear Dr. Science,
Is there a reason for not ending a sentence with a
preposition that you can think of?
from John Mostrom of Seattle, WA
I must admit I don't know where you're coming from.
Correct usage in English and Science is something
I've devoted my whole life to. Of course, if I say
anything you can't understand, it will just become
a new hammer you can try to hit me or another expert
over the head with. There are plenty of people like
you I can't hope to change the mind of. But then,
I've dealt with people like you before. People who
don't really want to learn, but just hope to find
someone they can publicly disagree with. There's
little I can say that your type won't find something
to object to. But getting back to your question,
no there's really no reason for not ending a sentence
with a preposition, at least none I can think of.
