Brian,
you can count on me to support you for the verbosity medal. In your longlong
blurb 4 lines are randomly printed, but from the 5th to the 2nd from bottom
there is an empty word-space at ~60% of the lines, neetly arranged as an
internal (in-text) margin. I admired it.

Bruno, btw, is grammatically incorrect, "their" can refer to singular AND
plural, unless it refers to not expressed multiple possessions (those are
theirs).

And let me admire the topics we are concerned with on this list: it seems we
have no more (practical, reasonable, stringent, actual, etc.) problems in
the whole wide world.
