You've never mentioned where your poverty stricken "hometown" is. Why is this a secret?

While Hadassah may have been "short-hand for cheap", in your "hometown", the actual meaning of the word, Hadassah is compassion.

How does one go from the word "compassion" to the word "cheap" as you've used it?

It's obvious, isn't it.
