Who Can Use 'Whom'?


It seems anytime "whom" or "whomever" is positioned as the subject of one clause and the object of another, people mess it up. And by people, I mean professional writers and editors.

The latest comes from the Los Angeles Times:

"Edric Dashell Gross, whom police said is a transient known to frequent Santa Monica, was found guilty of two counts of first-degree murder."

Here's my column explaining why that "whom" should have been "who."
