Poll Results 56

This was the question:

Which do you prefer?

Your savings is $0.50. 38 (51%)
Your savings are $0.50. 36 (48%)

That's pretty close. That's not unexpected because both are allowed.

An interesting poll. "Your savings is. . " is much harder to say because of the double 's' sound.

Where are you, Sentence Sleuth? It's been a whole week without a new criminal sentence! We miss you!

I missed you, too!
I was in Italy. Gelato, gelato, gelato. :) I also highly recommend Pompeii. Amazing.
