Lance" Subject: Re: Empirical proof for "going postal" Announcers on CNN Headline News have used 'go... postal' a number of times, but sorta "in quotation marks." And 'hello' was a prominent feature of one segment of "Talk Soup" on E! a couple of hours ago. 'Hello' is a short form of 'Hello! Anybody home?', a rejoinder that I've heard occasionally for maybe 3 or 4 years. But then I watch "Talk Soup," so who am I to say what's normal? DMLance
