    Sorry, but ASL is recognized (along with most other signed languages) as a true language on its (their) own.

    Some years ago the good folks at Chevy decided to their very popular Nova model in Mexico. For some reason sales were very poor. It wasn’t until someone in the advertising dept realized that in Spanish no va means “doesn’t go” — not the best endorsement for a sports-type car.

    So — my question is this — how can Zack use the term “antebellum” before the war actually starts?

    Today’s historic tid-bit (outside of Brian’s brilliance above): William Rufus DeVane King was the only Vice President to: 1) Take the oath of office outside of the United States (Havana, Cuba); and 2) Never actually preside as President of the Senate in session.

    He was in Cuba hoping to recover from tuberculosis In March 1853. Congress approved special legislation allowing him to take the oath of office in foreign territory, which he did on March 24. He started for Washington, but died at his home in Chestnut Hill, Alabama on April 18. He was the oldest Vice President (67). John C. Breckenridge, who became the next Vice President in 1857, was the youngest (36).

    With my two (well, “my” with quotation marks), it’s always an adventure. Fido (<<) is usually fairly complacent, but MUST have his treat when we get home. O’Malley, on the other hand, will put up the battle of the century every time. The caterwauling on the drive to the vet is relentless. Of course, when it comes time to come home, she is more than happy to leap into the carrier. She’s not into treats, but I will get a good portion of “I’m still mad at you” tail-swishes for the rest of the day.
