Side note: one of the proposed derivations of the term Yankee is that
it comes from the Dutch name Janke, pronounced Yanke. My father's
mother was German and her maiden name was Jaunke, pronounced Yaunke.
This was in Northern Michigan. So I guess I am pretty well qualified
to be a Yankee. Now, if you were inclined to call me a damn yankee,
damned yankee, damn Yankee, or damned Yankee, for your personal safety
you had best do it with a smile.
