And now a word from my mother via email.

Amy, I tried to make a comment on your blog but "google" said I already had an account but I don't know the password. So, now a half hour later, I just wanted to say it's Who may I say is calling? , because "who" is subject of the verb "is" , therefore, nominative case. In the other sentence "whom" is correct because it is object of the preposition "for", therefore, objective case.

"For Whom the Bell Tolls" and "Whom may I say is calling?" Otherwise it's 'who.'

This grammatical advice comes from my friend Sheila, who I know is right because she designs children's textbooks.

I like the airplanes I fly in to be perfect.

If my window shade is broken or magazine pocket is frayed, I wonder what else on the plane has seen better days.
That's why I love airplane bathrooms. I love how they are designed so the light comes on only if you lock the door, ensuring that you'll never forget to lock it. And even if you do forget and someone opens the door, the light is off! The shadow of darkness shields your dignity! Whenever I'm tinkling 35,000 feet over this great Earth I find myself hoping the engines, instrument panels and landing gear were designed with such great forethought.
