Not all of us agreed, if we did we knocked out Chandler.

<<Not that class entirely coincides with colloquial, but we're getting awfully close. So much of it is about the working stiff, or the disenfranchised. I don't think we're talking Knob

Kerry, you key phrase there is "so much of it is about the working stiff . . ." Yes, so much of it but not all of it.

But then as Bill Denton said the other day, I subscribe to the Jack Bludis heresy.
