Subject: Re: dish; and outing

Re outing: I'll check on the dates of German _sich outen_ 'come out' or,
literally, 'out oneself'. German has done the same thing here that it
frequently does with English--breathe strange new life into a foreign
body. Example: the adjective _ausgepowert_ 'exhausted', lit. 'powered
out', with no credible analog that I'm aware of in English.
