Turns out I wasn't thinking clearly last night. My test for wrapping the
variable names seemed to work but the error checking was flawed. The SQL
that got executed included the variable name tID instead of the value, so
MySQL returned a 0 -- no rows updated. The error checking didn't acount for
that. When I replaced the variable name with the actual ID, the row got
updated with all the variable names. So, that little script is broken.
