Do You Think Pronoun Case Is Dead?

Is it I or me? Do you care?
I care "for whom the bell tolls."

In "Philadelphia Story," Katherine Hepburn says "It is I." Do you answer the phone "It's me"? Would you rather use "that" than choose between "who" and "whom"?

Do you think English speakers have evolved beyond "who" and "whom"? I know the debate makes people furious no matter which side they're on, but I think it's sort of fun.

How about you?
