Zelig (ZEL-ig) noun
A chameleon-like person who can change his or her persona to fit in any surrounding; one who appears to be present everywhere and unexpectedly associated with famous people or events.
[After Leonard Zelig, hero of the 1983 movie Zelig by Woody Allen. In the movie, Zelig can blend in with people around him: if he is with doctors he can transform into a doctor; he can take characteristics of anyone: Hassidic rabbis, obese, Scottish, and so on. The name Zelig is from German selig (blessed, happy).]
"'Who Killed JonBenet Ramsey?' is written by Cyril Wecht and Charles
Bosworth. Wecht is a forensic pathologist -- the Zelig of medical
detectives, apparently, as he seems to be involved in every high-profile
case from Elvis Presley to O.J."
It is a glorious thing to be indifferent to suffering, but only to one's own suffering. -Robert Lynd, writer (1879-1949)
