Thanks SFD. This one is not touchy except for the touchy.
I also made it through all the posts thank you all. I have no
response to this for the sake of political correctness but

One of my oldest friends' wife was a server/cocktailette
at a multiphasic gastric abuse emporium called Carlos Murphy's.
This was over thirty years ago, and it was hoped although
