   Greetings from New York City.
   "Blue ice" is not in the HISTORICAL DICTIONARY OF AMERICAN SLANG or in the 
CASSELL DICTIONARY OF SLANG.  It's in today's Yahoo! News.  Don't blame me; I 
didn't do nothin' on that airplane.
Calif. Man Wins Airplane Toilet Ice Suit 
Sun Jun 15, 7:34 PM ET
SANTA CRUZ, Calif. - A Santa Cruz man won a suit against American Airlines 
alleging that one of the company's planes released two chunks of toilet waste, 
known euphemistically as "blue ice," onto the skylight his boat. 
After the chunks came crashing down and damaged his boat, Ray Erickson 
tracked down the plane — American Airlines Flight 1950 — and sued in small claims 
court. He receive'd the court's ruling in the mail Friday. A judge ordered the 
airline to pay him $3,236 - almost the entire amount Erickson had sought.
