Rebecca M. Phillips asks about using a possesive with a gerund. I
have a feeling that this may be an example of language's changing
character (Ha...I knew I could do it).

I'm usually pretty good with spotting "incorrect" usage. I had to look
twice to find the "offending" passage. And now, my example looks
odd to me. Anyone else??
