*Black Maria* is a book written by the protagonist, and DWJ had a bit of 
a time convincing various copy-editor people here and there that yes, 
she really did mean it to be written like that, it was being written by 
someone who would not use proper English construction all the time.

Thanks for checking the not 'not' for me!  :-)  It made me read it twice 
and mutter, but now I feel all better.
