>>It's pretty clear that you omit a period at the end of a sentence that is
included within another sentence (Chicago, etc.). But what about when
there's multiple sentences included within another sentence? I can't
come up
with any solution that seems ok. Would you use periods to end all
sentences
except the last? Use periods anyway? Use semicolons? Heck, I don't
know.<<

Sounds like you need a major rewrite. You have a clutter of independent
clauses! Could you show us an example?
