Main Entry: druth·ers
Function: noun plural
Etymology: druther, alteration of would rather
dialect : free choice : PREFERENCE -- used especially in the phrase if one had one's druthers
From Merriam-Webster OnLine: http://www.m-w.com . Definately a great example of a useful internet site.
(Pronuciation removed as it is both obvious, and full of HTML that I don't want to down-convert to something this DB will accept.)
(XML-RPC calls would be cool, too... "qbullet.smiley")
