Sam, you skewer, but I'll leave the "mea bad" alone for now, as it
would seem in this age of fluid usage, diction, vocabulary, that my
poor sentence isn't entirely out of place.

At any rate, I DO appreciate the succinct, decisive responses. I can
return to a lessened state of anxiety, and my wife can carry on in
full confidence.
