n.— «Last night we spent our first night in the house we’ll occupy for at least the next 12 months. In local parlance it’s a “rambler”—one floor, no basement, supposedly a scaled-down postwar variant of the ranch-style house, though ours is laid out like the shotgun shacks I first saw described in a Eudora Welty story.» —“‘Something Plausible and Coherent’” by Patrick Kurp Anecdotal Evidence (Seattle, Washiington) May 16, 2008.
