Dear Annie:

As much as I resent being told whether or not I can ask readers for their opinions, I won’t hog the Slog with my response, but conclude with this definition of grammar, courtesy of Ambrose Bierce:

“A system of pitfalls thoughtfully prepared for the feet for the self-made man, along the path by which he advances to distinction.”

As for you, Ms. Wagner, I will be over to your cubicle shortly with a rolled-up New Yorker and a handful of rubber bands. Choose your weapons.
