Date: Tue, 13 Jan 1998 20:01:51 -0500 From: Gerald Cohen Subject: "level the playing field" I recently received a query about the expression "to level the playing field." In what way is a playing field leveled? What is the origin of this unusual expression? Is it older than the past decade or so? Can any ADS members help out on this? --Gerald Cohen gcohen[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
