I recently suggested that (for all I knew) denizens of Marinus
might possibly be known as "Marines", to which a fine gentle who
happens to be a "Marinusian who in mundane life is in the Navy"
did reply:

> Marine?  Marine??  MARINE!!????????????
> I've never been so insulted in my life!

So I would like to publicly apologize.  My error was an
error tipografico -- what I meant to say was not "Marine"
at all but "Marinero", which means "sailor" in Dzhudesmo.

(Yo no soy marinero)

Here's an interesting fact that I just discovered --
the accent in "Marinus" is one the first syllable, not
the second.

You can be my belle-regard,
And I can be your shield and sword.
I can call you lady, and, lady, when you call me,
You can call me lord.
