Witness: I flew with Striker during the war. I'll never forget the night we bombed Macho Grande. Striker was the squandron leader. He brought us in real low but he couldn't handle it.

Lawyer: Buddy couldn't handle it. Was Buddy one of your crew?

Witness: Right. Buddy was the bombadeer. But it was Striker who couldn't handle it and he went to pieces.

Lawyer: And he went to pieces?

Witness: No. Andy was the navigator. He was alright. Buddy went to pieces. It was awful how he came unglued.

Lawyer: How he came unglued?

Witness: Oh no! Howie was a rock. The best tail-gunner in the outfit. Buddy came unglued.

Lawyer: And he bailed out?

Witness: No! Andy hung tough! Buddy bailed out. How we survived was a miracle.

Lawyer: Then Howie survived.

Witness: No, afriad not. We lost Howie the next day.

Laywer: Over Macho Grande?

Witness: No, I don't think I'll ever get over Macho Grande. Those wounds run pretty deep.

I learned from that one Sean Connery movie where the guy is the man now dog that doing this sparingly is ok. Most grammar should be learned from Sean Connery pictures.

You should trust people who tell you not to start sentences with conjunctions about as much as those who tell you not to end them with prepositions.

Note that I didn't offer any grammatical advice, just grammar-related meta-advice.
