Dave Benson, a Kalamazoo, Mich., reader, regarding reminders that there is no “the” in Smokey Bear, no “the” in front of Magna Carta or hoi polloi and always a “the” in front of the Mahatma Gandhi and the Rev. Jane Smith, writes:
“And there is The Ohio State University–not to mention an alternative rock band in The 90s named The The.”
Which isn’t to mention a favorite rock band from The 60s that many people called The Cream when, in fact, it was Cream.
Which reminds QT for some reason of another band, Was (Not Was).
Which isn’t anymore.
