In my post of 10:30 AM, Sept. 5, I used the term "above-mentioned". Well, since just about everybody doubtlessly accesses the MOAB in descending order, should that be "below-mentioned"? Or should we not make any assumptions and call it "above-mentioned for those viewing in ascending order/below-mentioned for those viewing in descending order" thus covering any and all eventualities and providing a modicum of protection from those who would pick nits? Or should we content ourselves with worrying about hunger, genocide, imperialism, xenophobia and the price of widgets and let the "above or below" thing slide?
