Sorry, no etymologies found.
Politics, same old shit amelia on this date in 1937, amelia earhart vanished from the sky. when we discussed that fact today, i was reminded that her navigator was a man. maybe he wouldn't ask for directions? i love joni's song, "amelia", and it has been in my head all day, appropriately. as usual, the lyrics are there to read if you so desire.
