Long hiatus. I lost my password.(!?%$^#) I think I’ll start using the same password for everything: it will be my name.
May I say something? I’m bothered by the increasing use of “that” when “who” is the word that should be used. It’s dehumanizing. We’re not objects, we’re people. Have you been hearing more of this talk, e.g., Are you the person that called? (No. I’m the person WHO called.) Are you the person that wants decaf? (No. I’m the person WHO wants decaf.) Are you the one that– No! I am not an object or a number. I am a free man! OK, woman. But still. Just my rant for the day. I feel better having gotten THAT out of my system.
