    Larry Horn asks a valid question:

>(or not so plain) 'scotch', as in whisky?  To me, when I was reading this

>To me, and I assume to Ms. Nathan, the right kind of scotch can convey
>'great!' without being a slang item.

**********Hmmmm.  Thiis looks plausible.  However,  I have been in a
stretch limousine only once in my life  and  it did not have a bar.  So may
I ask a basic question:  Do other stretch limousines come equipped with a
bar, permitting the passengers to imbibe?
