Dear Friends,
   Even though these reference questions are funny, I hate to see librarians
laughing at patrons behind their backs.
   The message below was in response to one member of LM_NET who didn't know
BMW stood for Bavarian Motor Works. Would she like to think we were all
laughing at her?

>Well, in a way you are right. BMW has bought a large share of Rover
>(as in Range & Land).
