I begin informal emails to multiple recipients with "Comrades". Maybe it's a Cold War nostalgia thing :-)

comment Is it acceptable to use “is become” instead of “has become”?
This reminds me of Robert Oppenheimer's quote: We knew the world would not be the same. Few people laughed, few people cried, most people were silent. I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad-Gita. Vishnu is trying to persuade the Prince that he should do his duty and to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says, "Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds." I suppose we all thought that, one way or another. en.wikiquote.org/wiki
