FWIW, my use of the English language is often more than a bit lazy (I blame it on experiments conducted by educators in the 1960's - Robert's series - we were a test school). That said, Judy is an astute editor and would probably proofread circles around you, Mark. I must admit I have sometimes been irritated when Judy has corrected my use of the language (after all - everyone knows what I mean), but often, on reflection, I have realized that I have not clearly pointed to my subject or the action(s) I meant to highlight. Not a bad thing.I will clarify for the list that it was not I who appointed you "Grammar Policewoman" for the listÿÿI believe you are self-appointed. I'm assuming you are trying to be helpful, rather than just trying to be a pain in the ass... correct? I mean, I would probably know it if you were trying to be a pain in the ass. Judy, I don't know what I would do without you. I have a feeling that no-one else really gives a S**t about my grammar. So, your attention really does comfort me. I will sleep easy tonight knowing that once you receive this bit of prose you will ply your trade and save me from myself again.
