I forgot to add the citation that "New Yorker" is mentioned in "Names for
Americans," H. L. Mencken, AMERICAN SPEECH, December 1947, vol. XXII, no. 4,
pages 240-256.
For cheap thrills, try the website www.pathfinder.com/NY1/ (New York
City's all news cable channel's web site) and nominate me for "New Yorker of
the Week" for "New Yorker."
Attached is a schedule of today's Names Institute, which I received just
a few short hours ago...
