smile Ah, that! Gee, we have such a low-key word for diacriticals:
'reading signs'. Can't compete with diacriticals ever!

@ BranShea: Thanks for the link. Now, if I could only work up the energy to use it.

Meanwhile, it looks as though "atherosclerosis" is a subset of "arteriosclerosis," the latter of which (apparently) may have more than its most famous and cholesterolic cause.

Is there anyone (including the President, obviously) who does
not have the cholesterolic problem in one form or another??

That would be the president that just had a medical check that showed a slightly elevated cholesterol reading.

Truly. And yesterday at lunch had fried chicken and mac & cheese,
and told reporters: "don't tell my wife".

An important factor in whether you pay the price for your dietary indiscretions sooner, rather than later, is how carefully you chose your parents.

But seriously, folks.

Atherosclerosis emphasizes the material that clogs the vessels, a whitish, cheesy stuff officially called "atheroma."
Arteriosclerosis emphasizes the place where the clog is, namely the arteries.

As commonly used, there's a huge overlap between the two conditions.
