Hey, I was sure I commented on this. Anyway, I got to tell Frank the history of "in a nutshell" yesterday. I don't remember what he was talking about, but he said something about "in a nutshell." So of course, I paused the TV and said, "Do you know where that phrase comes from? See, Pliny... um... the Younger? Elder? Well, one of the Plinys..."

Anyway, thanks for this.
