In Reply to: 'dead in the water', again posted by GPP on August 25, 2003
: I posted a question only a couple of days ago, but it's already disappearing out of sight down the page, with no responses to date: Can anyone help me with the provenance of the phrase 'dead in the water' (which pretty soon could be applied to the question itself)?
Some of us look at every new post. When a question gets no answer, it's often because nobody here knows its answer. That probably happened this time.
