Maybe it's just me, but I find sentences like the above two to be
terribly confusing since they lack any punctuation to separate the
separables.  Since I am just learning about this area, I need all the
clarity I can get.  Perhaps others are in a similar situation, so,
please use punctuation of some kind - separate lines, commas,
semicolons, etc.

Thanks.
