I can see your point of view, LEJ...and after the way he treated her, too, always dropping her in the middle of nowhere to make room in the front seat for some ghost girl...
But we're much the poorer for discourse since she's gone MOI (missing on Internet). I really don't want to encourage public speculation on her personal business...but it shure would be nice to hear from her. Maybe we could lay a grammar trap, start a thread full of inappropriate declensions (whatever that might mean) and mixed tenses...nah, we do that all the time.
Caitrin please call...just drop us a line or two.
