   From the Columbus Circle architecture review in today's NEW YORK SUN, 19
November 2002, "Dropping Anchor" by James Gardner, pg. 11, col. 2:

   If I may re-use a term I coined a few years back, The Caroline is a prime
example of "Neo-Preo" architecture, that is, a newly minted, postmodern
simulcrum of that most sought-after commodity, the pre-war building.

("A few years back," but probably not in the new NEW YORK SUN...O.T.: I
almost had a heart attack when I saw "Windy City" in today's SUN editorial.
I told them about my work and asked THE SUN to help defend Charles A. Dana's
reputation.  No response.  This is shaping up to rival the "Big Apple" NEW
YORK TIMES disaster, where I ruined several years of my life sending
wonderful stuff to Warren Hoge, William Safire (several times), Robert
Lipsyte, Sam Roberts, Douglas Martin, Richard Shepard, editorial/opinion
(several times)...--ed.)



HOLIDAZED--I'm seeing this word again this year.

WELLESLEY FUDGE--I'll probably take a day trip to the Boston area this
Thursday.  Make any requests now.

PINTO BEANS--An antedate to DARE & OED & M-W is probably in this 1912 book.
CATNYP tells me it's in the Science, Industry and Business Library, but I
know call numbers and smell "offsite."  I'll probably get it on Saturday--but
factor in a sixty percent chance of the bad old "not on shelf."
