Finally, you're probably wondering, "Why?" Well, back in high
school, I had a really cool English teacher named Ms. Coates. She
loved English, and Classics, spoke French, read Greek, Latin, and
probably other dead languages I know nothing about. She spoke
properly and precisely, as an English teacher should. But she also
loved pop and alternative culture. She talked about Rick Astley
videos, and seeing The Red Hot Chili Peppers before they were big.

Sadly, Ms. Coates passed away in October of 2002, far too early.
