      Dear Todd,

      So, could you consider Danny Boy, in light of one of the meanings of
      the term, a Scalawag?

      Yr. Obt. Svt.
      G E "Gerry" Mayers

      To Be A Virginian, either by birth, marriage, adoption, or even on
      one's mother's side, is an introduction to any state in the Union, a
      passport to any foreign country, and a benediction from the Almighty
      God. --Anonymous

      If I may interject, your clue here was "by definition":

      Main Entry: scal·a·wag
      Variant(s): or scal·ly·wag /'ska-li-"wag/
      Function: noun
      Etymology: origin unknown
      1 : SCAMP, REPROBATE
      2 : a white Southerner acting in support of the reconstruction
      governments after
      the American Civil War often for private gain
