No worries, I've seen proof of his roots that consisted of black leather jackets with lots of zippers, and a box of Motley Crew tap"e"s....

<<But I grew up in the ADKs, and hate to hear them denigrated>>

Yeah, after all these years the word "Dacks" still makes me cringe about as much as when I hear the sound of fingernails being scraped along a blackboard.

I suppose the reaction is similar to that of San Francisco residents hearing their city called "Frisco," which has been known to incite fairly mild-mannered people to fisticuffs.


Somehow I thought "The Honk" was the name of Learningtolead's estate (you know, like "Tara"), not the name of the entire town.

cool you & Mike Rawdon should write a book on How Not to look like a tourist / How to be a local when you're from somewhere else. Or better yet Local pet peeves that are ghey

At least calling it the "Daks" is just a contraction... Instead of just a blatant mispronunciation of the name...

Like, Warshington or OreGONE
