I or Me After 'Than'?


In the premiere of the HBO series "Westworld," two programmers at a high-tech amusement park are talking about a colleague.

"No one respects him more than me," one says, "but —"

He doesn't get to finish the thought.

"I," his superior corrects him. "No one respects him more than I. Your pronoun is the subject of the second clause."

Was she right? My latest column has the answer.
