Re: Grammar peeves

"It depends what the meaning of the word 'is' is." :)

Hey, whatever Clinton's failings (he's startin' to look pretty good now),
lets' not forget what he was before politics: a very good lawyer. He knew
bloody well that these people had been waiting for an excuse to get him out
of office, he knew he was in the Coliseum with the lions, and he knew that
in the legal arena, defining your terms is absolutely VITAL. Words we take
for granted have very different meaning in the twisted world of The Law,
and Clinton knew this. Of course, to us laymen, it sounded funny as all
f*ck ;-)
