    I'm sure Charlie intended to write "as" instead of the first "I" in that sentence. I don't imagine AmE has diverged that much from the rest, has it?!

    Yup. I'll go fix it. Thanks!
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
