If you are setting a variable inside of the if statements, and then 
checking that variable later, then I would say you should either use an 
else statement to give that variable a default value, or you should set the 
variable to a default value before the if statements.  Your code is 
"legitimate", ie. there is no reason you *have* to have an else statement.
