Strunk and White’s page turner of a read known as “The Elements of Style” continues. I’ve hit an iceberg here. The “Whom” and “Who’ conundrum.
We all tend to grapple with the use of who-whom, but I think we’ve got a good sample to remember by:
Who – refers to he.
Whom – refers to him.
Furthermore, Sandy likely does write better than I, rather than better than me.
Who knew? I’ve been using me more times than I would like to admit.

The issue is understanding that English has three cases: nominative, possessive, and objective. I teach this every semester to various college students.
