Folding, spindeling, and mutilating lauguage for fun since Aug, 2004
Tuesday, 04 September 2007

As a history buff, particularly a colonial/revolutionary history buff, I always love to visit Boston.

I always learn something new.

This time, I learned that if someone says you're "slow as molassass in January", its not the dis it appears to be.

Molassass in January apparently can travel as fast as 35 miles per hour.  At least when it is traveling in a 25-foot-tall wave.

I also learned the conditions of one of the first class-action lawsuits in history, and also, I've learned that blaming disaster and mayhem on war protestors is nothing new.

Oh, and for proper form, I should mention that it was Sue and Barb who learned this stuff first, and passed it on to me.
