"She uses words such as "the", "and", "yes", "no", for example, and has not added anything significantly important to their use. As a matter of fact her writing is crap and her use of Latin is appalling. I have notified my friends from the Greek and Roman mythological societies, retired headmasters, dead poets, biblical scholars, Stiff Upper Lipped Brits Who Occasionally Mist Association and Charlton Heston's ghost to join me in a class action suit."
