Subject: Hoosier etimology; Mr. Popick's posts.

Dear fellows contributors to this list...

About "Hoosier" etimology: many (well, 9) years ago I tried to date a girl

from Indianapolis and I asked her about "Hoosier"...

She told me it was a kind of a dialectical contraction of

"Who's your...?", referred to a question asked in Indiana

about who was your favourite candidate for U.S. President.

I don't know... it sounded trivial... too simple?

I'm sorry for Mr Popick. I say, what's wrong with life story anecdotes?

"Homo sum; nihil umanum a me alienum puto." (Terenzius)

- I'm a man. I don't think anithing related to man is unrelated to me -

Mr Popick, cheer up if you can.
