MATERIAL WITNESS WARRANT

   A Material Witness Warrant was issued today.  This is not in the OED, which has revised "m."

OED

   An OED update is attached below.
   At the very end of this message, it's said to check out www.askoxford.com.  I did.
   From http://wwww.askoxford.com/worldofwords/oed/surgeon/newmaterial/

SIMON WINCHESTER:  So what is the answer?  Why "Big," why "Apple"?
JOHN SIMPSON:  I believe that various jazz venues around America were known as "apples" and New York was "The Big Apple" because it was a central one.

(John Simpson must be tortured for this.  Maybe he can come to New York right now and watch a one-hour ESPN SportsCenter, or an interview with Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton--ed.)
