….but as a final word on the Whom wars, I just want to point out it could have much, much worse.
A few years ago, I was writing cover text for the issue featuring endorsements by the Stranger Election Clog Squad or whatever it was that year. At some point, it was proposed that the grammatically correct version of my cover text was this:

Ow. It never happened.
But it’s a priceless dodged bullet.
