Default Pediaphiles

My very good friend Rhonda Keith writes a little-read weekly e-letter about English, Parvum Opus, that I know many of you would love. I just about died when I read her item about pediaphiles in today's edition.

(I know this audience will object to her bright yellow highlighting, but that's how she wants to do it. Just read the text, willya?)

She publishes via email and blog. She may be little-read, but among those few are me, my mom, my sister Suede, and Richard Lederer. (Me being me, I suggested she hunt him down and offer it to him, and he subscribed and hasn't quit, and occasionally remarks on things. Nice credential.)

In addition to her high standards re the use of language, she's a rarity: someone who has strongly-held opinions (including about politics), doesn't mind saying so (when she has something to say), yet doesn't mind the fact that others feel differently. Huzzah.

So, now go LYAO.
