```I have two matrices with an equal number of rows, but not necessarily
columns, for example:

L1= {{True,False},{False, True},{False, False}, etc.....} ;
L2= {{True,False,False},{True, True,True},{False, True,False}, etc.....} ;

I would like to compute a count of the number of rows in which one of
the columns of L1 meets some criterion, and one of the columns of L2
meets some criterion, i.e.  If L1[[row,2 ]]==False  and
L2[[row,3]]==True  then this row contributes 1 to the count.

I suspect that there is an elegant way to do this, perhaps using Count[]
and MapThread, but I can't figure it out other than resorting to a
rather clumsy For or Do loop that would check line by line and maintain
a counter.

Any help would be appreciated,
Lee
