Subject: "pile-ons"

I have spent most of my life in Alabama (the Central part) and I

have never heard the term

"nigger pile" before in my life. I am referring to Lana Strickland's

response to what different areas call a "pile on." I guess Alabama is

more diverse than people would think. It could also have to do with the

fact that we played with black and white children whereas I assume that

one would not use the term "nigger" when playing with black children.

Also, someone mentioned the game "Red Rover." Is this the same game

where someone says "Red Rover, red rover, I dare Suzie (or anyone) to

come over?" If so, this was one of my favorite games when I was a child

in Delaware.
