The chief trouble about ‘potential’
lies in the want
of an effective instrument
to be original

. . . . . .

The OED word of the day for the erasure commentary is 'ping-pong.'

I bet the Oxford lads liked this 1982 citation:  "In an era of Ping-Pong diplomacy, Band-Aid economics, and Scotch-Tape solutions..the maker of dictionaries is too often driven to ingesting Aspirins."

The "historic 1904 Fred Marino building," which houses the Georgetown Arts & Cultural Center is a mystery. The only Fred Marino I can track down was the biggest truck farmer in Seattle... but not until 1915. Hunh.
