Good? Well? ... Fine?!

Fletcher made short work of this question posed by Kathy and Ross. They tackled linking verbs, adjectives, and adverbs, and, thus, made us feel bad (not badly) about what we think we know.

The trio also answered a question from one of our listeners about collective nouns. (Thanks, Dick!)

Now how do you feel?
