For someone whose namesake was so widely despised among European Royalty, you sure are a swell fellow.

And mille brava for Ms Danstra’s epic achievement, as well as her generosity. With her artwork in mind, the next time someone asks, “Heads or tails?”, the only possible response is, “Both!”

Err, that’s Damstra, with an “m.”

Thank goodness my News Writing 151 professor didn’t see that as a misspelled name would earn, “Fail for the day,”!

Err #2:. Alas, there should be a comma after, “that.” Time for self flagellation, but not too hard.
