RE: Levent Cur slang

Although I can see his side to some extent (which is to say that I've
felt the recent lambasting over the last 2 or 3 days was pretty much
unwarranted) after reading this, my first thought was...

can you say snotty little brat?

Sorry Levent, but you had this coming.  It's okay though.  I'd love to
have an S6, no question about it.  It sure would beat the hell out of
the 1970 Datsun 510 that I had when I was 19.

Take care.
