Frankly I'm stunned. Didn't think my quick observation and subsequent dictionary cut and pastes would classify me as as an "English professor" type. Amazing.
For the record here, I HAVE NOT and WOULD NOT e-mail you, so if you have received an eloquent e-mail to your oft posted addy from someone on this board, I can assure you it was not yours truly who wrote you. I'm quite sure there are still a few out there with a reasonable command of our national language.
