ha ha, Tedd.

Another approach in a KISS model would be to have a separate  
instruction/keyword like PRINTV to use for printing variables. Still  
there's a lot of planning ahead, I think.
ex
	PRINT Your age is
	PRINTV age

Still there needs to be some way to print several spaces at the start  
or end of a message or to print punctuation marks or to print something  
and stay on the same line (like , and ; are used now in BASIC). Things  
to plan for, eh Brian?
