A male bureaucrat working in Olympia, WA used this recently during a briefing on the progress with a certain proposal. At the time I was really puzzled and wondered whether that sort of intontation gets people to go along with what a person is saying. Maybe it's spreading. yoroshiku Benjamin Barrett
