good.  then if someone has some opinion, and i make a statement about 
that opinion, is it an objective or a subjective statement?  'about that 
opinion' is to say the statement is 'her opinion is that the earth is 
flat', rather than 'according to her opinion the earth is flat' or 'she 
holds the opinion that the earth is flat' -- so that the opinion is the 
subject of the statement?    (02)
