I doubt that this is a regionalism. But no one would think of calling someone "Squire Popik" or "Squire Murphy." And, as probably everywhere, there's some klutz attorney in Lake Oswego (Oregon) whose stationery proudly proclaims "(name deleted), A.B.D." Maybe this note is the tickler I need to report him to the governing board of the state bar... But maybe he intends that to stand for A Big Dunderhead. Peter Richardson
