  3. I disagree with MsSue on this one, knowing full well she is almost always correct
    << A run-on is a sentence in which two or more independent clauses (i.e complete sentences) are joined without an appropriate punctuation or conjunction. For example: It is nearly half past five we cannot reach town before dark.

  4. You're right, again, Bobpursley! I didn't think about no punctuation between the two independent clauses. Yes, that makes it a run-on sentence.
