    This is the kind of statement up with which I shall not put!

    I believe that was said by Winston Churchill.

    Okay, I declare an end to the grammatical hijack.

    Kudos to you Spider for knowing the original author of that grammatical monstrosity! My guess is he wrote after a few glasses of sherry. Whataya think?

    One of the few grammar rules I do remember. It's so much easier to remember when there's a good joke about it.

    A freshman at Harvard stopped another student on the sidewalk and asked "Where's the library at?"

    This student put his nose in the air and replied "Don't you know that you should never end a sentence with a preposition?"

    The freshman thought a moment and replied, "OK. Where's the library at, a**hole?"

    Nah, not in Chicago. That rule doesn't exist here, leading to the oft-used sentence: "Where you at?"

    My point to the grammar lesson was that it is ludicrous for Chance et al. to try to scare people with the very vague "they," because it opens the door for non-specific hatred. "They are coming to bomb us!" They who? If you're talking about Al Qaeda, then let's do everything we can to stop them, because there is specific evidence saying that yes, THEY do want to hurt us. If you're not specific about who is going to bomb us, then it allows the US to not be specific in who the enemy is, and that is just a world of trouble.
