Hey Alviriv.....yeah, I didn't know for a long time what Friends of Bill W was and still don't really know the origin of the expression. In fact, I overheard a couple of women on my last cruise trying to locate the AA thing and wasn't sure if FBW was where they needed to be or not.
Regarding FOD, I dismissed it as Holland America not having much appeal for "family". Maybe its time FOD is retired in exchange for something everyone would recognize like Stonewall or Harvey Milk. Maybe I will start a thread on this and see what ideas other people have.
