Of course, I don't feel I've "missed the point" at all. As I stated in my very first post on this matter, I think it's instructive and facinating to acknowledge and comment on flaws in great works of art, just as it's instructive and interesting to acknowledge and comment on moments of brilliance in works that most people would consider to be......less than great. And when people are unable or unwilling to do this, I would say that shows a lack of critical thinking on their part.

A new thought: If anyone today were to write lyrics for a new musical with one or more characters who should be expected to speak with perfect grammar, and if those lyrics contained not one, not two, not three, but multiple grammatical errors, I expect that lyricist would be excoriated by many of you who either don't acknowledge or choose to disregard the errors in the lyrics of MY FAIR LADY simply because you're so familiar with those songs and probably didn't notice the errors until they were pointed out to you.
