. . . Ron, the word "corn" actually

did originate in Iowa. It is derivitive from the Cornpone Indians . . .

The word CORN did NOT originate in Iowa. The word CORN is an English word of

Indo-European origin

I am rendered speechless by the power of your erudite rebuttal. The only

feeble defense I can offer is that I was merely passing on what my grandmother

had told me.
