I've tried a couple different versions.. some I built myself.. others with help from other questions/solutions here... I've left various versions in commented out. I cannot for the life of me get the last condition to validate correctly. I suspect that the " " white space is being added to the end of the string which is causing it not to pass, yet when I changed the order in the run() method to add the white space prior to the read line it still doesn't validate. I'm lost and my brain hurts.
