Christ, I'd like to add my curiosity about hellbent for leather. I've got no idea--not even a whisper of a speculation. If only we weren't losing (as it seems to me we are) such delightful forms. hells bells. shit for the birds. hellbent for leather. sam hell. Jesus H Christ. My brother had a guinea pig when he was young, named Harry P. Livingston (P for pig) Perhaps Jesus H. Christ is H for human. -- Joan Livingston-Webber webber[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE] "What gets better is the precision with which we vex each other." -Clifford Geertz
