I'll be leaving for my holidays later today, so Strathspey will have to take care of itself for a while. Routine business should work as usual, but I will not be there to `moderate' postings by people whose `From:' address does not match the one the subscriber database stores for them. If you submit something and don't see it distributed later on, please check whether your current address is the correct one; the Strathspey Server has information on how to do this.

I believe a wider context. It's a commonly used term here in the Washington, DC area. It seems most appropriate when describing much of the goings on of large governmental operations. Jay Andrews Alexandria, VA

Not just Washington, D.C. - the word is pervasive throughout the U.S. government, which seems to have a tremendous talent for inventing new words, acronyms, and the like (not all of which are as catchy and witty as "administrivia").
