Miz Penelope, you've confuzalated poor l'il ol' me.

You went an wrote

"It reminds me of his [Tweed's] mind and his morals, which slid into oblivion some time ago..."

But according to the Digitrad, no less a personage than Robert Burns hisself went an wrote

"And Tweed runs to the ocean".

So I'd like to know whichever it is, iffen you'd be so kind. Did ol' Tweed run or slide? If his mind and morals slid, did his body run? Or perhaps did ol' Tweed *have* the runs, and Mr. Burns got it wrong? Or maybe the ocean is oblivion?

I shore do thank you fer your help in clearin' this up.
