He's in Arizona, where the issue raised by the term 'mixing' is very much alive, and I've been in monolingual, (politically-)monocultural Missouri for nigh onto a quarter-century. Well, Rudy told it like it is! I still have enough of a visceral reaction to the term that I wouldn't use it in a publication, even if I were to totally buy what I seemed to say in my note a few mintes ago. DMLance
