Thought I'd pass on a couple of items from the Atl. Constitution's weird news briefs section: REALLY HUMAN: The protection against discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation in Cincinnati's new human rights ordinance was repealed in November 1993. However, the ordinance has the nation's only provision forbidding discrimination against "Appalachian Americans." [in Australia] members of Parliament traditionally address one another much more aggressively than [in US Congress] Among the names recently overheard on the floor of the Parliament: perfumed gigolo, brain-damaged, harlot, sleazeba, scumbag, mental patient, and dog's vomit. This is probably mild compared to what's been going on in Russia lately. Ellen Johnson ellenj[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]atlas.uga.edu
