DVD Talk review of 'Justified: The Complete First Season' (Blu-ray)

I read Jamie S. Rich's DVD review of Justified: The Complete First Season at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=46710 and enjoyed and agreed with the review. Did not, however, agree with Mr. Rich's use of the word gunsel in describing Raylan's opponent in the first episode. His usage was incorrect. A gunsel is not a gunman. Gunsel, as used by Dashiell Hammett in the "Maltese Falcon", is slang for a young man who is gay. It is an Americanized version of the Yiddish "ganzel' which comes from the German word for gosling. As a fan of Hammett's work and a speaker of Yiddish and German I thought you should know.
