This sounds very interesting. Anyone know the gist of the cycle/waves thing?

when my friend Susan calls me on some grammatical mis-step, I never remind her that it was I that edited her papers when she was in law school, oh, so many years ago. I do think it would be helpful if kids had a clue that they were bending the rules. Just as a survival skill. Susan also always keeps her left hand in her lap when she's eating, never wears white after Labor Day and co-ordinates accessories, but we've been getting each other out of jams (usually, auto or cat related ) for so long, we're used to each other, I guess.
