Whew! The language in this article was horrendous![edit]

With all due respect to whoever wrote the bulk of this article (that would be "2008ana"), that person clearly is not a native English-speaker. If English is your second language, please have someone edit what you write before you post it on Wikipedia! Anyway, I've fixed the situation, though it took a long long time, and involved every sentence of the entire article. Whew! Softlavender (talk) 08:46, 10 May 2008 (UTC)
