Date: Fri, 1 Aug 1997 17:18:23 -0400 From: Evan Morris Subject: "Surcee"; "Surcey"; "Surcy" I know that this was discussed briefly (and inconclusively) here a while back. Does anyone have any more info on what this word might be? I think this question may be the next "gry" virus in the making -- this is the third query I've had in the last two weeks.
