Yo, peach-dawg,

I was reading the history stuff and they talked about derogatory names for the Appalachian hill folk who threw the war to the north. From what I can gather, this is where the terms hillbilly, cracker and clay eater came from. The first two I understand, but what the hell is a clay eater? The clay feet reference is just self explanatory for me. I get on my posting highhorse but really I don’t know shit and everyday I log on I realize it and am grateful you all put up with it and that you all don’t give me your home addresses in case you decided not to put up with it…… [img]images/smiles/icon_eek.gif[/img] [img]images/smiles/icon_cool.gif[/img]

Arm’s distance rule in effect,

Tom
