Might I point out that itís hot and itís August, and judging by what goes on
here every year ó the nerves are freyed (spelling??) and people blow up over
non-issues. All of us have special likes and dislikes. Judith Wegner likes
to upgrade the level of accuracy in formal expression. Why not enjoy it and
even learn now and again minor interesting points ó like the parallel
"Auditorium" and "Scriptorium". I liked that. Anyway, when September comes,
the hot issues of the summer will surprisingly become much cooler.
All the best to all and sundry, ngcohen
