Subject: Re: one as a pronoun?

Alan Baragona writes that his students write:

"When one reads J.D.

Salinger, he is overcome by sadness."

No, when one reads J.D. Salinger they are overcome by sadness.

For myself, the indefinite "one" is just one more tool in the pronoun

arsenal--when one needs it, it is there.
