Learn english! "You could have went"????????? MH, ever hear of the word "gone" used with a helping verb? Get educated! You could have GONE is the correct verb form. Someone in journalism should know how to speak.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 70.161.188.162 (talkcontribs)

There's always a tactful way to present grievances. This, however, is not it.
As you can see, this interview was transcribed from a telephone conversation I had with Miss English. Even though I'm a journalist, I don't always speak in the Queen's English and I felt it was disingenuous to sneak something in that I really didn't say. You can think anything you want about me, but next time try not to sound as if you're frothing at the mouth with rabies. Thanks ever so much. Mike Halterman (talk) 10:44, 27 October 2008 (UTC)
