Word of the Day
- A poem in which the author retracts something said in an earlier poem.
The word 'palinode' comes from Greek roots meaning 'again' and 'song'.
Quote of the DayThe real accomplishment of modern science and technology consists in taking ordinary men, informing them narrowly and deeply and then, through appropriate organization, arranging to have their knowledge combined with that of other specialized but equally ordinary men. This dispenses with the need for genius. The resulting performance, though less inspiring, is far more predictable.
- John Kenneth Galbraith (b. 1908), U.S. economist.
