"There are more horses' asses than horses in this world."Jack Kerouac, quoting Ernest Petersen, quoting his father. Dharma Bums, page 219.
Hello, I have really been learning a lot since I have come to the US. Of course, some of this, I never planned to learn. This page is an example. It took me a while, but now I see the humor. And I like it. We are not so obsessed with keeping everyone happy in the UK. There we still call a bum a bum. I gather that here he would be called something like "employment challenged" I wonder if the folks you poke fun at realize how dopey that actually sound? Do you suppose so? I do want to thank you for helping me learn. It has been fun. My best to you. Heather McLeod
