I think triples--at least the ones I've collected--represent a different phenomenon. While the first element of the double serves as a modifier, triples are used to indicate that no other members of an implied category are worth worrying about: Location, location, location. (The most important factors in determining success of an enterprise.) Service, service, service. (The factors in success of a politician.) Larry
