It's the figures that need to be flat.

Clever and well stated.

When I first joined this forum I became a little confused (not difficult, I know) between the two interpretations of 'flats'.

The last woman burned for witchcraft was Mary Pannal - just a few miles north of Cas Vegas.

That was a couple of months ago now.
