In which I drone on and on and on about THE importance of THE definite article!

You would think that Auntie would know better. When I first saw the headline "Plans to control access to Amazon" I panicked. Where the hell would I buy my CDs and books? However after taking the time to actually read the article I find that the story is about an idea under consideration by the Brazilian government to require all researchers and workers in THE Amazon basin to procure permits and any found in THE Amazon rain forest without a permit would be heavily fined.
