This is not a flame, but when did "myself" replace "me"? In the last
couple of years, I've seen regular use of "myself" in print, heard it on
broadcasts (TV and radio) from professional broadcasters and writers in
statements I thought should have been "me," and am curious. Did I miss a
change in usage? Or have I been wrong all these years?
