Good thread, Linda. I live in Madras, Oregon...accent on 1st syllable &of
course, there is the bit more famous, Madras, now Chennia, India. Seems
like I remember we were named for the plaid cloth that a local merchant sold
rather than for the city in India. We're a pretty rural city with, at the
time of the naming, not very sophisticated, people. 8-)
Keep it going.
