    Somebody asked me today what the difference was between "among" and
    "amongst," and I replied that "amongst" is the English pronunciation
    and "among" the American.  I also mentioned that people in the U.S.
    affecting an English accent would say "amongst."  So some of us still
    look up to ya'll, at least the more affected amongst us!
