bgz:  [Brian Kilmeade's] << "infamy" might be reinterpreted as something
like "historical significance (esp. during wartime)." >>
WB:  And, not an hapax meaning either. He narrated two miniseries on Andrew
Jackson and Stonewall Jackson. Maybe in one of them at least, he used the
positive <infamy>, in his summation, sorta like last words at the end.
