« Confidential OLC Opinion: Is Christina Aguilera's Music "Torture"? | Main | Just Another Manic Monday »

The usual saying is "Woe is me," not "Woe is I." Thus A3G is stylistically correct, if not grammatically so, in saying "Woe is her," not "Woe is she."

If only I could remember the actual words for pronouns-as-objects vs. pronouns-as-subjects. Woe is me!

Wouldn't it be "woe is she"?
