Hi again,

Did some more thesaurus lookup and came up with the following additional 
options:

     11. predicate
     12. judgement
     13. claim
     14. attest
     15. calculation
     16. computation
     17. mark
     18. finding
     19. statement
     20. verdict
     21. decision
     22. ruling
     23. standing
     24. punchline

Anyone prefer any of these over the current favorite "outcome"?

Regards,
   Shadi
