Prepositional phrase of the week

Strayhorn onpasses this lost-and-a-long-way-from-home example:

It follows the precedent established by Michael Jackson in 1993 when he stretched a $20 million settlement to a boy who claimed to have been molested over 20 annual payments.

I'm not inclined to add the Daily Beast to the reading list just yet -- certainly not until I am satisfied as to the Beast policy for the War. But it's always good to know that writers in the Brave New Age can still kick a modifier up into the cheap seats.
