QT Grammar R Us Seminar on the English Language

SpiderMichele Bachmann

N.F., a Chicago reader, regarding an item that noted Michele Bachmann was now theorizing that President Obama planned medical experimentation on child refugees, writes:
“You wrote that some spiders are more ‘poisonous’ than others. A toxin injected with a bite is ‘venom.’ Spiders are venomous, not poisonous.”
You are correct.
QT regrets the error.
Spiders are venomous.
Michele Bachmann is poisonous.
