Gnomon - time to move on

By the way, you took your Florida entry out of Peer Review, not because it was controversial, but because you couldn't be bothered getting the spelling and grammar right.

However I did not take this article out of Peer review. It has been sitting there since january 4th , and I have been agreeable for over a month now to making whatever changes Hringer or any other peer suggested.
I am not going to start that process over. Do not expect me to push submit because I won't do it.
A mponth ago I went through the list of names to make sure they really were born in Michigan and whether they had their own articles. and was surprised at how little I found.
As to grammer and punctuation- I was up till 11 last night working on this and said I will leave the grammer and punctuation untill morning when I can look at it with fresh eyes.
I went to bed and first thing I see this morning insted of an article in Peer review I see one with a submit button. Wello, forget it.
Ypou can just keep the 1999 article with all its flaws as the "approved" one. I have bent over backward to seek your approval and moved whole sections around.
I will complete the changes in grammer and punctuation you suggested but then I am dropping the whole project.

>>I went to bed and first thing I see this morning insted of an article in Peer review I see...

that Gnomon has done about an hour's work on this, correcting the remaining formatting issues, and has done the update, replacing the Edited one with Shagbark's version, has notified the Eds and Shagbark of this and is now taking a well-deserved rest.
