  And how do you read it out loud?

    "The <i>Gannet</i> is getting us <em>nowhere</em>"

  Try to read the above to someone over the phone. Just once?

  Yes, it can. And no matter how you render the I-element ... 

    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury 
    Signifying nothing.
          - Willam Shakespeare.

  Although I much prefer Lehrer's version.
