Subject: initial too

Sorry I'm so far behind, but I wanted to get my $.02-worth in. Initial

'too' doesn't seem at all strange to me, though perhaps a little too

informal for written English. Isn't it interesting how varied our

perceptions on this feature have been? Others found it very formal.

I'll have to listen to myself for awhile, but intuition tells me it's

common in my own speech (Atlanta-born). Initial 'as well' is another

matter entirely. I'd mark that sentence with a star in a heartbeat!
