Date: Fri, 19 Jan 1996 14:39:56 EST From: Sonja Lanehart Subject: go postal In my introduction to the English language class today we were talking about ways to create new words. I mentioned "go postal" in the course of the discussion. At the end of class one of my students said that (went) postal was said in the movie "Clueless" by one of the characters. Apparently the person who said it in the movie is the lady in an Aero- smith video. Her name is Alisha (sp) ?stone. Anyway, I told my student I would mention it for those who were questioning its existence. *********************************************************************** Sonja L.
