I used to say "fur" because I saw a movie with a character named
"MacPherson" who was called "manFURson" by the other characters. But it
seems to me that, in real life, most people say "macFEERson."

All say, "How hard it is that we have to die!"---a strange complaint to
come from the mouths of people who have had to live.
