    it's a real Tst'n(Sarcee) family name...John Byrne chose it for that reason.

    Not implying anything (this time, though I can and do imply things on occasion), I just thought it sounded funny. It's interesting that it's a real name though. I honestly would never have guessed it.

    Not as bad as Runningwithscissors. But yes the names do have familial meanings. The same can be said for early europeans as well. The last name often indicated that persons occupation ie:Baker, Smith, etc.

    I believe Mr Byrne had said he got the name from a former chief of the Sarcee. A search of certain sites in Alberta proves it's a Sarcee name (I'll PM you about it).

    BTW: If anybody else is interested in researching the name, please fell free to PM me.

    It is a bit of a tongue-twister, isn't it? LOL. The Tst'n is the real name for the tribe...The name Sarcee is the name given to them by others.

    From what I read on various sites, the Tst'n now consider the term 'Sarcee' as offensive. It was a 'Blackfoot' term meaning 'stubborn ones'.

    Driftwood: Well, I got about a foot and a half. Now, it says, uh, "The party of the second part shall be known in this contract as the party of the second part."
    Fiorello: Well, I don't know about that...
    Driftwood: Now what's the matter?
    Fiorello: I no like-a the second party, either.
    Driftwood: Well, you should've come to the first party. We didn't get home 'til around four in the morning... I was blind for three days!

    In that case, I think Micheal should started referring to himself as a Tst'n Shaman. I wonder of Pak and Van Lente have heard of this.

    Yeah...When John Byrne originally used the term in Alpha Flight, I believe it was an accepted term (at least to the general public). As in the past, Eskimo was an accepted term for Inuit peoples (even though many of us didn't understand the words' origins/meanings and that they were offensive).

    I'm all for the ignorance of the past being set right.

    'Twoyoungmen' as a real last name - the real last name of the real medicine man, iirc - was mentioned in the v1 letters column. No, I don't know where.

    I didn't like the bimbo in the video (there's no other word for how she comes across in that video - even if in real life she has a degree in astrophysics or something).

    She was too much of a 'all our readers are teenage boys who only like blondes with vast... tracts of land...' type. Trying too hard, and a bit condescending.
    As has been pointed out, saying Puck was original but Marrina was not... bluh.
