I can't vote yet. I'm still working out how I feel about it. We had a stormy relationship, me and Gertrude.

I hope this poll doesn't intrude upon your grief. My apologies if so. (F)

Gertrude was a two bit hoe and I'm glad she's dead.

I would ask you to watch your language in this thread. I understand you have strong feelings, but the wounds of her passing are still fresh for some people here. Her shorthand ability was a thing of wonder, nay beauty.

May we all raise our glasses of Sherry in honor of Old Gert. As a part-time mohelet, she performed the bris for all my children. She will always have a place in my heart and my scrapbooks.

I never knew the woman, but I've heard on the street that she was always warm and friendly, but played a mean game of Scrabble.

I heard once that it was Strip Scrabble. Maybe I'm mistaken.
