Back in the early '70s, my former UCLA linguistics chum Michael O'Brien and I were exchanging frequent letters, especially when we hit on a new idea of CONNIDITIES -- CONNected IDiomatic ambiguITIES, and the discussion on 'bum steer' got so perilously close to one of our connidities that I have to post it: After shooting the bull for awhile, Max gave Slim a bum steer. This should handle both the advice and object meaning alluded to earlier. -- Moonhawk (%->) <"The fool on the hill sees the sun going down and> <-- McCartney/Lennon>
