Re: Coin World '' Collector's Clearinghouse"
- I now have the article. Eric Von Klinger transposed the
word "obvious" in points 1 to 3, slightly changing the meaning of
points 2 and 3.
1. "No source is obvious for these alleged particles."
I believe I wrote "There is no obvious source for these alleged
2. "No reason they should initially accumulate in the center of the
die face is obvious."
I believe I wrote, "No obvious reason why they should initially
accumulate in the center of the die face".
3. "No reason they should migrate outward in such a precise radial
fashion is obvious".
I believe I wrote, "No obvious reason why they should migrate outward
in such a precise radial fashion."
Sticking the word "obvious" at the end of the sentence implies a
level of certainty (and a hint of arrogance) that I did not intend.
The clause "There is no obvious reason why..." means the same thing
as "There is no clear reason why..."
Sticking "obvious" at the end of the sentence, however, indicates
that the foregoing statement or observation is inarguable.
