313. Conyers or Cheney??
Been looking at that sentence for a few weeks. Logic tells me it would be Cheney that goes to jail for a long time but I cannot be certain because of sentence construction.

When you wrote I believe John Conyers will impeach Dick Cheney and that he will then go to jail...., I tried to remember what Mssrs. Strunk and White call that construction. It's a... what is it again...? A strangling barnacle? No! A Phalangist article? Naw....

Oh, yeah, a dangling participle, ain't she?
