The following is a humor item, a joke column, by Bob Hirschfeld, about a
virus that will return any e-mail item that is either not grammatically
correct or has spelling errors.

Taking Liberties   The Pluperfect Virus  By Bob Hirschfeld  Sunday, May
2, 1999; Page B05 (Washington Post):

Even though the item is a joke, the Wall Street Journal (13 May 1999,
p.B6) noted that Hirschfeld "was deluged by e-mails from companies
worldwide desperate for information about the virus.  One staffer told
Mr. Hirschfeld he'd spent hours searching the Web for an
anti-Strunkenwhite virus software program."

Once again, the column is intended as a humor item.
