Okay, I can accept that.

The jury is out on split infinitives.  I've heard that was a Victorian 
rule, so as to simulate the Romans who *could not* split their 
infinitives because they're all one word.  Lady Sherlock's companion is 
obviously not Victorian.  At least not yet.

Hey, Ellipsis is still one of my favorites too.  Vice-President Crusher 
Joe still ranks ahead of him, which is odd because I adopted Crusher 
Joe.  And Wyatt's not quite my favorite any more.

I've got some relief coming to save this story line, but he's kind of 
stuck in 1954 right now.  :-D  Who knows what trouble the world will get 
into before he arrives...

Turns out I'm an anally-fixated oedipal paranoid with 
south-of-the-border schizophrenic delusions...  But never mind, I've 
found me the ideal job.  I'm going to run for President!
