  1. I appreciate your self-deprecating self-congratulation.

    Congratulations from someone other than yourself, me.

    p.s. I’ll submit a purchase request to the Seattle Public Library. If they accept it, they’ll buy 5 copies easy. We liberals love to fund our libraries…


  2. I guess it should have said “us liberals,” right?


  3. Thanks, all. And yes, I believe “us” would be appropriate. But then, I’ve given up my editing days!


  4. Prufrock was right the first time. It’s “we liberals,” not “us liberals.” Use ‘we’ when it’s the subject, ‘us’ when it’s the object.


  5. Ah, we liberals also noticed that our friends Mark D. Roberts and Tod Bolsinger were contributors. Those two have been a big encouragement to us liberals.

    (Actually they aren’t political at all, and I’m more moderate than liberal. But I couldn’t resist.)
