I don't recall that you ever mentioned which edition you were quoting from.
I don't have every edition; I am aware of a few different typos in the
editions I have (the Easton Press edition has the most embarassing one,
fwiw); thus as far as I knew it was completely possible for you to be
correctly quoting from a corrupt text.  You chide me for extending you the
benefit of the doubt?

(Re: textual variations. Dan Rabin is our specialist/memory man here, and I
pause to remind him of the horrific variation in the omnibus edition of
Long Sun, wherein "I" becomes "Horn." )

John Barach.
