> As a plebeian to the list, I wanted to ask a few questions.  


As a youngster I had the misfortune of attending a military academy,
Culver--my choice, completely clueless. Upon arrival I learned that I was a
plebe, which I thought a term invented to denigrate. I was correct, but
today I learned its Latin root. Of course plebe was not explained, nor was
anything else. I guess we were supposed to intuit it all, which I never did,
hence an early departure.

So, no plebes here, just fellow travelers. (e will hang me for that when he
sees it!)
