Also, the queries about whether damn has a bad connotation confuse me. Don't any of you remember the furore when Clark Gable turned, in the final scene of "Gone With the Wind", and said to Scarlett, "Frankly, Scarlett, I don't give a damn." Very shocking, and titillating, I might add. You-all ( use the term advisedly) make me feel very, very old sometimes. But then, at 72, I can't claim to be a spring chicken, anymore , can I?
