Larry Horn asks a valid question:
>Are you SURE this this is 'slang "Scotch!" (= great!)', and not just plain
>(or not so plain) 'scotch', as in whisky? To me, when I was reading this

>single malt (or at least Chivas; essentially, something of a quality and
>price she wouldn't have been in position to indulge in on her own budget).
>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?
