I love it that you quote yourself, you must be terribly important. Even intellectual titans such as yourself get it wrong. Here is Webster's definition of ghetto:
noun ( pl. -tos or -toes)
a part of a city, esp. a slum area, occupied by a minority group or groups.
• historical the Jewish quarter in a city : the Warsaw Ghetto.
• an isolated or segregated group or area : the relative security of the gay ghetto.
verb ( -toes, -toed) [ trans. ]
put in or restrict to an isolated or segregated area or group.
ORIGIN early 17th cent.: perhaps from Italian getto ‘foundry’ (because the first ghetto was established in 1516 on the site of a foundry in Venice), or from Italian borghetto, diminutive of borgo ‘borough.’
This is the ghetto sestiere of Venice. The houses are built taller than in other sestieri because Jews where not allowed to live outside of the ghetto and space was limited.
When mch mentioned this my thought was gay ghetto, where this look has become more common...goodnight and sweet dreams...o and you were too rude to your mother in law..i hope she doesn't invite you back to her house.
``The way you correct the behavior of society is by behaving well yourself. If you go around villifying other people for being rude, you are ruder than they are.'' Judith Martin, Miss Manners
