Nice ambiguity! Intentional? Although I read the Chicago Manual of
Style, I like to think of myself as a ``male person of style from

Speaking of the Chicago Manual (now, this is getting a little OT), do
you know that the Chicago Manual says that the use of ``none of <plural
noun>'' with the plural copula or verb is correct?!? They say the use of
a singular copula or verb in that context is ``correct but stilted.''
Harumph! None of my friends or correspondents has ever called me
stilted. I can't even use stilts.
