RPI,

Nice looking stuff. Its not all for me but it looks good. BTW thanks for the rugs. They came in yesterday.


History lesson of the day:
Ghetto = The word "ghetto" actually comes from the word "getto" or "gheto", which means slag in Venetian, and was used in this sense in a reference to a foundry where slag was stored located on the same island as the area of Jewish confinement.[2] An alternative etymology is from Italian borghetto, diminutive of borgo ‘borough’. [3]

The corresponding German term was Judengasse (lit. Jew's Lane) known as the Jewish Quarter.

I am pretty sure that is not what you were referring too. But I digress.
