    I was trying to humorously echo RC's post; and somehow, "who" sounded like a better follow up to his "what" than did "whom," but, never mind, I guess.

    😕
    Whom, may I ask, is responsible for totally hijacking my thread?

    This'll get you back on track:

    Lefty With a Gun
    For years, I was what we lefties in Texas refer to as, "A bright blue dot in a big red state." I believe in recycling, social services, a woman's right to choose, and immigration. I spent a lot of time defending these things around my red friends, and bemoaning this defense around my fellow blue dots.

    And then I bought a gun, and everything changed.

    Here’s the other dirty truth about shooting a gun: it is as terrifying as it is fun. At least part of the trembling left in my arms when I shoot is the realization that it would be so easy – so simple and easy – to turn out the side of my cubby in the range and shoot someone next to me. It's not an idea I would ever act on, but it is frightening all the same. It’s the same sensation you get when you stand on the edge of a really tall building – or a lookout at the Grand Canyon – and realize how easy it would be to just keep leaning, until you fall.

    I didn't post that article. Sleepyguy wanted to get us back on track so he linked to what I quoted.

    Anyway you are more likely to get shot by a biker or a little girl with an uzi or maybe your own father if you are a teenage girl sneaking out than by me...going by the news anyway.

    Well that was written by a self-described lefty, so nonsensical stuff (like being frightened of something she knows she will never do) is expected.

    I am going to give a personal opinion here. I dont have any qualms about people shooting tin cans, paper targets, glass bottles or any other inanimate object, what i do object to are those so called trophy trophy hunters who kill for so called , 'sport'. I look forward to the day when Deer have weapons and shoot them and hang them on their wall.

    I might use it in writing as there are sentence structures I would write but never speak where whom sounds better.
    I would certainly say 'who did you shoot?' and not 'whom'.
    In this forum, communication is done through writing, not speech.
    Do you (TWhitehead) like start some of your letters with 'To *who* it may concern' ?

    Hitler was a charismatic public speaker and a poor writer, being quite ignorant of
    German spelling and grammar.

    I look forward to more hunters thinning out the deer population.

    Might cut down on Lyme's Disease.
