Housekeeping item: When writing a non-fact type article, it is sometimes necessary for the writer to refer to himself. There are different ways of doing this, and to this author, they all seem a little clumsy. I don’t like first-person singular, and first person plural seems better but has its own shortcomings. A better way has not made itself known to our writing staff, however, and we are aware that I have not been consistent. A standard needs to be established.
We have decided that first-person collective (plural) will be the standard used at McMurdo’s Camp. We at McMurdo’s Camp will refer to ourself(ourselves) as “we” or “us”.
