As such…and being somewhat hard-wired toward one of those “renegades [who] would use three or four spaces”…plus my mutant version of ellipses… I’m feeling fairly proud of meself for even making the effort to retool my “style” to make various flavors of red-pencil-ers happier. Sincerely, e.e. cummi…oops, tryin’ to slip into another facet there…Tink Bell
