One feverish anal-retentive little hobby of mine is coming up with anagrams. Although there are algorithms that will do the grunt work for you these days, I like the thrill of discovery that occasionally pops up during eureka moments from a dungheap of duds (that would be a good name for a second-hand clothing store). That’s why I do them all by longhand. It’s a bad habit, as I accumulate folded scraps of paper I have to sift through in search of anything worth salvaging.
I’d be grateful if you could let me know which ones you like. And if there are any you don’t like, don’t feel you have to hide your flamethrower under a bushel.
But before I share them with you, have you ever seen anything more surreal than George W. Bush commemorating the historic Selma march of the civil rights movement?
