Ha! I have seen that article, and it makes sense to me! I Always enjoy the stories about language, and Reader's Digest is a great read for both humor and drama. I couldn't bear to let my subscription run out. If it did, I'd be forced to read the wife's "Cosmo" when lounging around the house. Another excellent post Hale, keep them coming!
