  1. You should have added another option: Other (I’ll tell you in a comment). If for no better reason than it would give me a chance to expound upon the local style guide for the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, where I once edited copy. It’s most charming rule, for me, was a prohibition on the word “vomit”, claiming that such a word would put a putative reader off their morning cereal. Thus the story of a Scotsman who apparently died when bitten by several illegal venomous snakes he had included the line “he was found covered in throw-up”. Pure comedy.
