Arun, Sascha et al,
I have gone through the entire manuscript again, and left more comments than I expected in this Adobe Acrobat file. This is probably because I did not previously understand some of the language.

* Please make sure that all my changes make sense to you, as I suspect that some of the original wording may have been in somewhat broken English. For example, such ambiguous, unpunctuated gems as "very loose or tight and tight or loose!" that appears in L1083 can't possibly help the reader!

*Also, it would be good to remove some of the details currently appearing in the figure captions, and place them into the text.

* In addition, note and use the CMS rules entered in the guidelines about titles of sections and the beginnings of new sentences.

* See my comments about the CDF PRL that you refer to in L609.

* When dealing with items such as "the mT of the tag electron or muon and the pTmiss
system," please use the same notation for the vector object, or use "vector pTmiss (c.f. L681 and L 782 or caption for Fig. 8).

* And you probably should not use "\mu" or "\tauh" when you really mean their pT values, as this can confuse: That is, use pT\tauh, e.g., change "mT of the muon and pTmiss " to: "mT of the pT vectors of the muon and pTmiss (or "pT\muand pTmiss).

* You must define that mysterious D\zeta!

* You should not use the more controversial "adverbs" such as firstly, secondly, lastly, most importantly, etc, but stick to the adjective-adverbs such as first, second, last, most important...

In any case, you have done an excellent job in getting to this level of quality for this draft, but it still has some confusing sections that I am sure you will attend to with patience. I would send your next version for a fast reading by the ARC, and then onto the CWR!
