    ... who said "You can't please all of the people all of the time." Well no, he was talking about fooling people. I generally welcome corrections, but this isn't even a correction you're peddling, it's a question of style. You're picking a very minuscule nit here. Life is too short: I'm not going to bother worrying about pleasing you.

    Mark Twain: It ain't what you don't know that gets you into trouble. It's what you know for sure that just ain't so.

      Just trying to help. I do this professionally. Idioms have to be interpreted by the mind. So their use, though often colorful and fun, force readers to work harder to understand your message. Suit yourself.
