"We forget how young _are_ children are."

People who don't distinguish between _are_ and _our_ - yes, I'm talking to
you, Noam Chomsky - are deserving of the same attention that those of us
who don't distinguish between _ten_ and _tin_ get. :-)
All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
