Just got an e-mail from frequent commenter John Cowan with a worthy cause and a book offer:
The Dictionary of American Regional English is very
close to being canceled, unless they can get more money. See here for details.
I accidentally bought two copies of McWhorter’s Power of Babel.
I will send a hardback in very good condition to the first Hattic who
contacts me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will pay postage.
On your marks, get set, go!
