    Default Re: scope of negation

    Ah! Those are good ones! What to do with an afterthought -- and a re-iterated negation? Off hand, I don't know. I'll have to think about that. This may be new territory -- beyond the original Reed-Kellogg.

    But, I'm off to a farm auction, so I'll think about it later.
