Ok.  I just read assert_raises is deprecated in 1.9 and will be deleted
in 2.0... I guess I was worried for the future and didn't understand.
Is there extended documentation somewhere on this.  The pickaxe doesn't
go into assert_raises/assert_throws.

Thanks for your help!

You want assert_raises.  Exceptions are raised, Objects are thrown.
