Even more sadly, Jan, sometimes both are "right," and sometimes neither. And there's no objective observer to settle the matter. Bang.

Is "mussels" a misprint, M? Actually, I like it that way.

Lorraine, the link was to a letter in favor of "stand your ground" laws, now on the books in a number of American states.

Thanks for the comments.

Thanks for the clarification, M. It reads fine, and the echo of "muscles" adds a layer.
