RE: CC & BCC

These are anachronisms which have their origins in the distant past when
we used carbon paper to generate duplicate copies. Thus, if you sent a
copy of a memo to another party you carbon copied or “CC’d” it to them.
Normally, you would list on the memo those parties who got a “CC,” but on
occasion it is desirable to provide someone with a copy of your document
without indicating that you have done so, and this is a “blind carbon
copy,” or BCC. Kind of funny that this language now applies to E-mail.
