I once knew someone who was disabled for life because a medical 
professional missed a decimal point and gave him an order of 
magnitude higher dose of a drug than he should have had.  The medical 
professional's career was ruined.  The insurance company was out more 
than a million dollars. The patient's life was radically transformed 
for the worse.    (02)

All due to an error in logic.    (03)

This had *very much* to do with reality It had very real 
significance, and very real meaning.    (04)
