    Speaking of which, Rachel Maddow had a segment the other day under the heading "thinning the heard."  Someone was well-intentioned, but spelling still needs some work. "Thinning the herd" is apparently a novel concept to our city-bred media folk. They probably don't know what "all hat; no cattle" means, either.
