Listening to CASEFILE and Amber Heard's testimony in the Johnny Depp defamation trial on the same day, I note the same sequence of tenses errors. E.g. "We walk into the room. I sit down. He asked...." Is the Casefile writer 36 years old, as Amber is? Had English teaching-- especially as regards sequence of tenses-- totally collapsed by the time they went to school?
