Subject: RE: BS: MARS in the Headlights
I was regurgitating, levity intended, what my son WhatsApped to me earlier, robo. I think we discussed the "You" thing in another thread recently. Brits use it in the way I did and some yanks think it's intended to be personal. It isn't. I suppose I could have started the post with "The country that sends..." instead of "You," but that seems to me to be adding a layer of heaviness to proceedings.

Anyway, not you. By the way, I think the science was practised in spite of your government...
