Lots of marriages have been dissolved because of violations of #2. My all-time favorite example of #1 was produced by Archibald Hill, who stopped in mid-sentence in a lecture and, to the puzzlement of all of those in the class, announced "I did say it!" When he realized that we didn't have a clue as to what he was talking about,m he explained, "I've always said I never pronounced as /myUr[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]/, and I just did!" Stay warm -- it broke a record here today, set in 1950: it was 79. Rudy --Rudy Troike (rtroike[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
