Political correctness and despotism go hand-in-hand.

Political correctness is just another word for control.

As Voltaire said, "To learn who rules over you, simply find out
who you are not allowed to criticize."

You're both worse, starting off-topic threads with ill-judged remarks.

Jim, where did you grow up that has you calling them 'pick-em-up trucks'? I've only ever seen that in Stephen King books.

I found this online: http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=pick+%27em+up+truck

....but all the southerners I know say 'pickup truck' (even the redneck ones)

Genuinely curious, thanks!

So, because that's the only place you've seen it, it must be fact. Is
that anything like "If it's on the Internet, it must be true."?

About as much as "Questions posed on usenet are really statements of fact"...

If I really thought that, why in the hell would I be asking the question? Not only was I asking Jim, but the question was where he grew up causing that to be in his vernacular...your bitchy retort doesn't even attempt to answer the question.

The point is, oh dull one, that it doesn't matter where Jim grew up
(W. Virginia), the term "pick-em-up" isn't limited to some specific
area and perhaps Stephen King didn't coin every phrase in the Urban
Dictionary.

Jim, where did you grow up that has you calling them 'pick-em-up trucks'? I've only ever seen that in Stephen King books.

Born in Washington, DC, I grew up in Huntington, West Virginia.

I really don't know where I picked up that phraseology... I knew no
one with a pickup truck (except my grandfather Thompson, a farmer in
Pendleton County, WV (*)) when I was a kid, and I moved straight to
Arizona after graduation from MIT.

(*) I learned to drive in that truck... an old Chevy with a throttle
cable on the dash because I was too young to reach the pedals ;-)

In my present neighborhood it's very rare that a family doesn't have
at least one pickup truck Wink
