ASID! My ears are still red from being boxed for correcting my own mispelling which you quoted in a post, the removal of a single letter in something which I myself authored. Your Miss Manners explanation of why this was something that should not be done had me convinced you had the moral high ground.

But now my blinking, incredulous eyes see what appears to be Miss Manners falling off the wagon, running whoop naked down the aisle, jumping pews in wild pursuit of a greased pig.

Sober up, man!

Dear Lord, you're right! Technically, I should have used brackets, not braces, to include the summarized part of that quote!!! :shock:

No need to eat the whole meal, if you are satisfied with just dessert.

However, wouldn't Grigg's insist that the brackets be outside the quotes entirely?

No. Brackets (used to be parentheses) are required to be in the quote to denote added or changed (summarized) content, or observations [sic].

To quote ROU, "Blah, blah, blah-bitty-blah.... blah. [blah]" ;)

Are there any interpretations in Griggs for the Mayan calendar(Blah), or Nostradamus[sic]?

Death limped away, his arm hanging useless. He should really have taken back up when he went to collect Christopher Lee.

Ya bastard! You had me thinking that he'd just died. And worse, that my beloved Fox News had buried the lead! Fortunately, Google has declared him to still be exothermic.

Nope he's still alive. Just turned 90 today, too. It was that news which made me though... yeah, Death better be prepared when he goes.

The voices of those who sacrificed for the countries which opposed us are more numerous than those who sacrificed for us. Who will judge which are the better men?
Who will judge which was the nobler cause?
If their sacrifice is so that it may be we who judge, is that an end worthy of the means?

Rogers had to admit, above the screaming, that the scientist’s little finger did in fact know more than he did after all.

The hatch slid open. Andrea drifted into the vessels’ abandoned cafeteria. At last, she had found the bowls of the ship…
