Hi Nathan,

Ok, it's good that we're looking back, because that's not right; commas
did not have to do with what was causing problems.  Let's look at the
buggy statement again.


With fresh eyse, can you look back at how you corrected this?

If you think this my insisting on you seeing why things weren't working,
consider this: if it's an easy error to make (and it is an easy mistake to
make), you may want to spend some time to learn how to recognize the error
and its correction.  That way, you don't have to wait for folks on Tutor
to point things out for you.
