You can't get thrown off what you don't get to climb ...

I was addressing a principle, not a gender!

Capital Kiwi is in good company in perceiving the elimination of lawyers as an essential element of revolution. Shakespeare's revolutionary villain said it best,

"The first thing we do, is kill all the lawyers."

As to the fellow part, I've never minded crossing gender terms, and I never take offense when offense isn't intended. I have completely enjoyed the camaraderie, on this and other boards, of being addressed as "guv," "mate," "fellow", and (oh my gosh!) "dude." Keep 'em coming.

OTOH, when you are out in cold, deserted, needing help, the two people most welcome, depending on circumstances, are:
a Mechanic or a Lawyer!

Nuthin' like furriners tryin' to do the fyutchah pehfect in Suthrin. We do admire y'all's attempts, though, darlins.


To this, I will certainly agree, and I am, of course, able to read what you have written given that I am from Nawth Care-liiiiiiiiiinah, although I never in my liiiiiife actually talked like that - except for the effect!
Do ya think we two ought to explain (given the ongoing economic boom being enjoyed by the South) to all these others how we actually DID win the war???
One last question of importance - are you a native Atlantan or a transplant, and do you live IN Atlanta or in one of those fancy new suburbs?

Gee, Reaganomics took a few years to start helping the economy, but I didn't realize that the South's "winning" the Civil War was finally helping the economy after 140 years.

While the North's superior economy decided a war over a hundred years ago, the South's economy has grown while the North's has stagnated. Too much Yankee money went South.
But it strengthened the Nation, and that is good.

I wouldn't say that. The economic boom is all over, and we seem to be quite comfortable in the Midwest, except that we have the highest gas prices. All California's gotten from the economic boom is huge inflation. And I think the main reason so many people moved south is due to a warmer climate.
