Hanging Modifiers are Not Always Grammatically Incorrect

It’s possible, perhaps probable that a Yeshua ben Miriam the Nazarene once lived.

It’s unlikely that he was the idealized prince of peace so completely betrayed by the vast majority of his so called followers today. That person is most probably a myth, but a myth I love, admire and seek to emulate.

I think an Argentine whom I also admire, albeit an Argentine now residing in Rome, not amidst splendor but certainly within auditory range of the echoes of splendor, feels the same way.

He may be Latin America’s greatest son since the Great Liberator walked the mountains and valleys, plains and deserts of this wonderful continent; perhaps, the future’s primary hope.

Hanging modifiers are not always grammatically incorrect.
