The Washington Post called me for help answering a reader's query, and I passed on the query to ADS-L. The request generated a number of responses, which I faxed to the Post, and they chose several. Voila. Actually, the end result is not as bad as some of the things the media do with our input. And as for the absence of 'change from above', noted by one of the recent 'is this a joke?' messages, I may note in passing the entry of 'who' into the restrictive relative paradigm. -- Cathy Ball (Georgetown) cball[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
