I hope that Gov. Chris Christie’s English teacher doesn’t follow Maine news, and that Mainers won’t follow his lead on grammar.

When he said recently, “The one thing they can’t say about LePage and I is that we sound like everybody else . . .” (“In Maine, Chris Christie promises big support for LePage re-election”, May 8), the reason he doesn’t sound like everybody else is not because he’s telling “the truth,” but because he’s not speaking correctly.

“Everybody” who speaks correctly says “about me” and not “about I.”
