Subject: Re: Picayune

anyone as much as it does me? I've known the word, in the meaning "petty,

nit-picking," at least since my undergrad days in Ohio. Is it regional?

Generational? Is there anyone on this list who hasn't heard it?

Maybe generational, but apparently not regional. I've known the word all

my life, most of which has been lived in Mississippi.
