Hasn't anyone ever told Lindsday/Susan (What's up with THAT?) that typing in all caps is rude? A couple of questions come to mind: I wonder why a dying cancer patient is in a maternity hospital. How can one spell deteriorating correctly and mispel Christian?
I wonder if I could start a consulting business with these folks as clients, helping them with their grammar, spelling, spacing...
