    mail from colleges

    What the heck? I just got the mail...St. Olaf College sent me four, yes, four things - today. Two identical postcards, and two identical envelopes. Welcome to the age of the computer, why not check the database to delete duplicate names?
    Away.

    Well, often, the colleges don't send out the information. Instead, they can hire a company to do it for them.

    I'm not too sure searching for duplicates can help. I've occassionally had mail from colleges that transposed my last name with someone else's.
    The word rap as it applies to music is the result of a peculiar phonological rule which has stripped the word of its initial voiceless velar stop.
