I agree with your information...
As to the question of "sounding right"...

On Earth water is something like 800 times the density of "air".
The Martian atmosphere is something over 150 times less dense, not to
mention composition.
I just don't see major weather effects for water circulation on Mars as we
understand it today.
A lack of potential geological activity suggests to me that a boatload of
pretty salty-water is frozen in a higher geographic location than gravity
would seem to dictate.
I'm curious as to how it gets/got there.
Geologically dead suggests a pretty much leveling of the waters nicht whar?
But then again... I'm just a drunken neophyte, so there's that.

"Wipperwil4s in the Dawn.
Pretty soon he will be gone.
But he has got one good song to sing.
But like my Daddy said.
It is in your heart not your head.
And you have got to sing & sing & sing.

There is a window in the wall.
Looking out on it all.
Leavin4 fears & tears & troubles along.
There is a fire in the stove.
Keeping out the cold.
Warming wine & winters & babies & homes.

Seems like everyone is out looking for the sun.
Singing rain & pain on he who hesitates.
But it will shine when it shines.
You might think I am waisting time.
but I am just a good old boy thats learned to wait.
Yes i am just a good old boy thats learned to wait."
