Am I being redundant? I just noticed, while waiting in the colonoscopist's waiting room (shameless plug for preventive medicine screening) that the Smithsonian article featuring one Anu Garg and his devotion to words and verbophiles of all orders has been picked up by none other that Reader's Digest and printed in the February 2002 issue (p. 60A)...

Now [u]that's[/u] National Recognition !

Thanks for that, wofa! I wouldn't normally see RD and it would've slipped right by me if you hadn't had your check-up! Talk about wide circulation.... and it may be picked up by some of the foreign-language editions, too.

Let's hope it brings us a lot more contributors with many new word posts.

The Smithsonian article was what got me here in the first place.  The rest, as they say...
