    By the way, McHugh (Patriot Ledger) is a vastly underrated reporter. He's been doing solid work for years now, and I think of him as the poor man's Reiss. Now that Curran's gone, I hope we'll pay more attention to this guy, and this paper, because so far Projo's coverage is lacking without TC. They don't even have a Patriots article today. Back to the point - put McHugh up there with Reiss and Tomase (and Marente) as guys who dig and unearth some good scoops.

    Thanks Pats as I've been having difficulty finding a good source of local coverage.

    Except when he writes such tripe as:
    Ummm. . . . right. . . .

    Hindsight being 20/20, his analysis was personal conjecture and was as good as any scenario at the time.

    I agree. That would have been a great solution actually.

    True enough. But it's news-lite. I've read harder-hitting stuff on most message board.

    I know this will make me sound like a jackass, but I believe the plural of "status" in Latin is still "status" not "stati". Sorry, I couldn't help myself...

    It's not. It's stati.

    since you are using an english word (even though it is derived from latin), in an english sentence, you should use the english plural, "statuses"

    He was assuming Branch wasn't dumb as a rock.

    You're saying sticking with this agent is the smart move?

    Status, us: a fourth declension noun whose plural nominative and accusative forms are "status" (long u). There isn't even an "i" form except as an abbreviation for the genetive.

    -us, -i, -o, -um, -o

    -i, -orum, -is, -os, -is

    That's second declension. "Status" is a fourth declension noun: us, us, ui, um, u// us, uum, ibus, us, ibus.:)

    Does this mean our Latin players won't play on Sunday due to injury??

    Que mal!

    Huh. Interesting. Thanks for the lesson, pony. I haven't taken Latin since 9th grade.


    Back to the topic - Eric McHugh does a good job and this is an interesting article.

    This thread should stand as a model for all the Latin grammar discussions on this board. Good, respecful debate with a lot of useful concrete information.
