"Skuttlebutt"

Was the name for a bucket half filled with water into which sailor's discarded cigarettes when the smoking lamp was lighted.

A natural place for conversations.

Thus the term "skuttlebutt" now applies to the information that was available in the pipeline, no matter the source or accuracy.

I was always able to be a source but my accuracy was always in question.

I am happy to continue in that tradition.
