Heaven Forbid Hi Tarz: Cute article, where did it come from? One other New Yorkism; they distinguish between trash and garbage (trash is paper, garbage is wet). I think it's bec they used to have to separate it. In Israel, because so many people come from so many countries, even grammer has picked up foreign parts. The Hebrew Language Academy is always ranting about it, but they can't change people, although they do have the right to ban songs on the radio for bad vocabulary or grammer. And I mean incorrect, not because of the meaning of the text!! I'm going to be out for most of next week, so have a happy new year and see you later. Regards, Jane
