We don't say "I'm a good organist, amn't I?"--rather, we go for the ungrammatical "I'm a good organist, aren't I?" Well, why not say "I'm a good organist, ain't I?" Think about it! I think you're right. Now think about this: What about the word = "pesticide"? If the well advertised product named "Raid" and a host of other insect killing products are classified as "pesticides", why (for instance) is a handgun not considered a "homicide"? ....off to finish totally our pre-Christmas act of arbourcide by = incinerating our Christmas tree. Sincerely; happy New Year to all! AjM
