When I applied for medical school there were still some colleges
which required Latin O level. I failed Latin O level, but I passed
English. To kick is a transitive verb. The subject should be in the
nominative case and the object in accusative. Few nouns in English are
inflected, but personal pronouns are. He does not kick I, he kicks me.
And I do not kick he, I kick him. Whom do I kick? Not who.
I thought that this is what subeditors are for. I find this sort of thing
lamentable in tabloids. I think that a journal which aspires to some
degree of learning might be expected to conform to some canons of grammar.
