  • “I’m a latent pedant. I don’t do anything about it. I just love other people’s pedantry, people in Wiltshire getting steamed up in the Spectator. ‘Dear Sir, the word asparagus is from the Greek, not the French, as your previous correspondent wrongly asserted ….’ Or the letters the BBC gets after a period play. ‘Dear Sir, LNER did not have lamps on Pullman carriage tables in 1923’”
    -- Peter Cook, in the Independent, 1993
