   Oh c'mon Fred, stop arguing the ridiculous.  The revised OED entry is bad.  They didn't "pick and choose" to lead with 1904 rather than 1858 or 1880 or 1893.
   And I never said that every word from everywhere in the world must be in the OED.
   And yes, I know that AMERICAN SPEECH note on "86" was prepared before I posted on "86" in December.  But it's a bad note anytime.
