Word of the Day

"Chrestomathy", from the Dallas Morning News' description of Ron Paul's "bigot-grams" as "a crackpot chrestomathy of extreme right-wing conspiracy raving." Chrestomathy, as James Kirchik looked up, is defined as "a collection of selected literary passages, often by one author and esp. from a foreign language."

Thank me when you take your GREs or SATs.
