    Shortly before Barry left on his latest trip,I wrote to him

Etymology_. Items to newspapers have the best chance of acceptance if
they're submitted as a short letter with an enclosed scholarly
treatment to back up the assertions. He replied that he'll consider

    Perhaps we'll be able to send Don Wycliff a "Windy City"
submission in two months or so. Maybe it will be longer, but this
task is doable.
