The Word Note bits on -Dictionary are always my favorite parts; and I know it has come up before that I’ve entertained inappropriate notions about these be-lettered “working writers” offering perspectives. However, (despite the fact that I may [sometimes secretly, sometimes openly] champion looking things up instead of asking dumb questions) it had never occurred to me to poke at Google in this regard, because everything else in that application is hyperlinked and usually I have it set up to show the Dictionary/Thesaurus/Applebits/Wikipedia/British Dictionary/British Thesaurus (the last two are sometimes extra delightful),
I guess I thought that Word Notes were from the apple side of things. BUT, NO: They are O.A.W. folks, and consequently probably from the contributing editors, and consequently I may have unknowingly entertained scandalous and weird fantasies about a gentleman with a family. Eek. Among which: a son only 4 years my junior.
