Date: Fri, 5 Jan 1996 13:09:30 EST From: Beth Lee Simon Subject: source v. Shepherd's catalog (which reads like a send-up of New Age restaurantspeak and yet is just seductive enough that I'm tempted) has "sourced" in several descriptions, as in Merelda (a green pole bean) "sourced by us" from a seed supplier outside the U.S. The bean itself was developed for the European/Spanish market. Somewhere else in the catalog (but I can't find it just now), they say they were asked to "source" a particular kind of seed. This sounds odd/new to me. But then, I hadn't heard "go postal" either. beth
