cough, let's not forget our lovely state was the name that the, errrr,
"local-yokels" called it when us sea pirates first clambered ashore.

having a bro-in-law who is 25% Schagticoke Indian teaches you things. in
fact, on the way DOWN to NC I rode with him. (we're old buddies, even though
he knocks boots with my sister). well, see, i already knew that EVERY
FRIGGIN town name along the way is an Indian word.

finally, my rage grew, and hulk had to smash.
"hey, see that license plate number? that's an indian word...."

something about "guns"
