#153790 - 01/17/06 05:23 AM more word worthy than Bill
Loc: Marion NC
I was actually taken aback by the thought that Buckley didn't know that word. I know that there's a lot of words out there, but that guy knows and flaunts more obscure ones than anyone I've ever run into. I pretty much dislike his snobbish attitude towards us mere mortals, and was actually surprised by your report of his grace in admitting to lack of knowledge of aliquot.
NOt that I am better than Buckley when it comes to vocabulary, I had run into aliquot a couple of times in a previous job, but had forgotten the exact meaning, so I didn't want to give you a mealy-mouthed vote.
I'll bet you three dollars to your used postage stamp that he's never heard of a sedgwick, though._________________________
