Well, at least, several replies have reminded me just how screwed up and 
dangerous my household AC wiring is. Problem is, the situation is so 
screwed up that it will take a total rebuild to fix the problem which, 
we cannot afford. And, we bought it this way! Initially, I started out 
to fix the mess but, the more I got into it, the more I realized that it 
will take a total rebuild. So, I went about labeling those outlets that 
are not grounded.
