I was puzzling over the provenance and usage of the Brit-English (?) word
"geezer" with some friends yesterday. Is it still in use? To my ear, it
belongs in 'Sixties Pinter, but my sense of it is that it must still be
around - because I can't think of another expression that quite does what it
does. Who (what?) better than this learned assembly to shed light on my
eastern darkness...
