Subject: Re: 'old maid' correction
"Old maid" in this sense has been current in my family since my
childhood. (All of us now live in Oregon, lived in So. California when I
first heard it; mother from Texas and Oklahoma, father from Iowa.) I
couldn't swear to hearing it outside my family, but think I probably have.
