Apologies to the list - but as a long term resident of Kentucky I must
admit that I am unfamiliar with the term (technique?) "Kentucky windage".
Is this usage as in winding a device ("the clock is a runnin' I winded it")
or as air through the trees or orifice ( "whew, was that you or the dog
that let forth that windage"?) Perhaps it is a phrase corresponding to the
one in common usage here in Kentucky; "California fudge factor"?
