    I'm sorry Don, but when idiot spammers cruise the cellular newsgroups
    looking for regulars and then spam them with offers for exactly what you
    are looking for, I tend to get a little ornery when I see stuff like what
    you posted. Post something not related to this particular topic and you'll
    be very likely to get a civil response from me.

    If you are getting them for what you said in your first post, then consider
    yourself lucky. You will not find them for less than that. I am a Verizon
    dealer and buy wholesale but I would buy them for the prices you listed.

    thank you steven and kc for your reply
    i didnt know i was hitting on a sore spot with the group
    you can search ebay and see the prices vary
    the really cheap ones that i am purchasing expire 12/31/03
    so i figure they got to sell them or eat them
    prior to december
    i was getting 30.00 cards for 24.00
    and 50.00 card for 40.00
    i thank you again for the explanation
    i have been reading posts on here for a few months now
    and it seemed like a pretty well mannered group
    ill never mention it again
    my appologies
    don

    Or, as one wag (RIP, Norm) put it, "An apostrophe does not a plural
    make". And, again, the terminal punctuation goes outside that
    quotation mark.

    No, only in American in certain circumstances. Like when the full

    Even when the full stop is part of the quote?

    Unless it's mid quote. Same with brackets and parentheses.

    How does this last bit work? Something like

    The last sentence on the page reads
    "This is a great discussion (even though off topic").

    The above looks really bizzare.

    Actually, upon reflection, this would look this this...

    "This is a great discussion (even though off topic).

    So the full line would read:

    He said "This is a great discussion (even though off topic)., but he
    was wrong.

    Difficult to tell where the quoted material ended that way. So much
    easier this way:

    He said "This is a great discussion (even though off topic).", but he
    was wrong.

    even though the close quote is outside both the close paren AND the
    full stop.

    Even:

    He said "This is a great discussion (even though off topic).

    looks completely incorrect, while:

    He said "This is a great discussion (even though off topic)".

    or

    He said "This is a great discussion (even though off topic)."

    look better, (even though the former is more technically correct).

    No, the final double quote is only dropped at the end of a paragraph.
