It was thus said that the Great R. D. Davis once stated:

  Cracker. Forget the script kiddies, the meaning I'm aware of is someone
born, raised and lived only in the South (of the US---east of the
Mississippi and below the Mason-Dixon line). Another term that pisses me
off---computer. I'm sorry, but a computer is one who computes, not these
new fangled machines.

  And what's with the abuse of "cab"? Cab ... short for cabriolet, which is
a type of horse carriage. Not an ugly yellow car with black and white
checkers on it. Sheesh!

  -spc (with all this language abuse, isn't gay at all!)
