  • Heck, anyone who loves American English should burn him in effigy ... it's better than burning the flag!
  • > recently burnt George Bush in elegy.

    We should all have a favorite elegy (n. song or poem expressing sorrow or lamentation) over the loss of liberties and the death of compassion since Dubya was annointed president. Well, unless you count compassionate conservatism.

    But really gnat, for shame. You should know the difference between past and past-imperfect tenses, by now:

    They burned an effigy
    An effigy was burnt

    Tsk. Is there still room in that Auckland Grammar? :-)

    • Cool! Subconsciously I knew the difference (when I reread what I wrote, I can see it's wrong) but I'd never thought of it. Now I can see it. Thanks!

      If there's room at Akl. Grammar, William will go. He can proofread his old man's editing :-)
