That one cracks me up. 

I'll say one thing for Little Mac; he and Little Powell were good little friends before The Late UnPleasantness; and despite his being smitten with Miss Nellie, when Miss Nellie's parents played the STD card to try to dissuade Nellie from Marrying AP, Mac wrote them a letter protesting their doing so and standing up for AP.

Lookee, lookee, Pvt. Clewell - we've hijacked another thread together!!!!!

Back to business, sigh...
