Lightwizard, Yes, I said ain't. Another bubble burst? Sorry. As for ellipses, I don't use them here or anywhere other than where they're supposed to be used--primarily in quotations. This uptight attitude from a person who said ain't. I'm an enigma.

Mutmut, Yup, there are lots of overly long sentences in many of the classics. I believe that the champion of extremely long sentences--if not the champ, certainly a serious contender--is William Faulkner. I'm a tremendous admirer of his writing, but Bill, honey, where's the freakin' period? He also has enormously long paragraphs. Day become night becomes day while I'm waiting to see that little indented first sentence.
