    “We do not go to opera to see stories similar to those we would see in movies. We go to see jewels etc.”
    Just about the most irritating thing in modern journalism, to *me*, is the use of “we” like this.
    Speak for yourself”paste”writer (what is this “paste”, never heard of it before), please do not include me in this “we”.

    Yes, and we do not go to the movies to see stories similar to those we read in books. We go to see guns, car chases, and explosions…right?
