   This week's VILLAGE VOICE has a "War Glossary":

   The terms are the usual stuff, with not much insight.  "Cakewalk" is
here--see COMMENTS ON ETYMOLOGY for the origin of that.  "Coalition of the
Willing" is here, but the true origin of the term isn't discussed.  The usual
VILLAGE VOICE Bush-bashing is in some of the definitions.
   "Theives of Iraq" is curiously defined as being based on the Egyptian
movie THIEVES OF THAILAND.   What????  No one remembers the classic Douglas
Fairbanks movie, THIEF OF BAGDAD (1924)?  It's been remade many times since
then.  Thailand????
