Vinnie, I never intended my post to be offensive in the manner in which you obviously took it. Please take this in context of the 50s when this took place. Our neighborhoods were very mixed ethnically and it was very common for people to use such terminology. There was a post sometime back on this board about just that. Our parents were from the old country. If your parents and grandparents never used any such words to denote those of different nationalities, colors or religions, I would be surprised. And finally, no, I wouldn't be offended if you called Olinsky's the Jewish side of the street.
