Barry is to be commended for his perseverance, and the sources he alludes to

should be in everyone's library. Especially neglected is the remarkable

journal "Comments on Etymology," the only place to keep up with the latest

archaeology on Hot Dog, hi-de-ho, and other American slang. Its circulation

has yet to reach three figures. You as an individual can subscribe by sending

$13 (for a 1996-97 subscription, Oct to May; retroactive volumes may be

available) to the editor,

Don't try reaching Jerry by e-mail. He still operates exclusively by s-.
