    Thanks.  "Gang agley" is one of my favorite word combinations in English literature. I love the comment threads, too, because I ALWAYS learn something new from them.

    •  Gangrel Clan (5+ / 0-)

      Does anybody out there remember the fantastic but short-lived TV show Kindred? (Mark Frankl, the vampire Prince of the City, was killed soon after in a motorcycle wreck, but remains a forever heartthrob.)

      Show was based on the game Vampire: the Masquerade. It featured different clans of vamps with their own characteristics.  The Gangrel were nomadic Gypsy types who roamed the Earth. That would fit with the definition of gang above.

      Thanks, Ojibwa, for teaching me something I did not know (as you always do.)
