Why did you separate the above 2 sequences of thoughts by a blank line? Is the inherent pause in the communication of your thoughts not also applicable to your code?

Where we see the pause between thoughts appears to be in a different place. I see them both within the function and between the functions and I assume you see them between the functions only.

BTW I'm more than happy to disagree. There is no right or wrong answer unless Guido wants to pronounce on the issue :-J
