Is it that time already? Millennial fever will soon engulf our thoughts. But

good for you, David, for issuing the call.

I remember a couple of years ago Dennis Baron saying there should be an ADS

New Word of the Century, as well as New Word of the Year, when the

appropriate meeting rolls around. Good idea, which ties in very well with

David's. But - when will be the appropriate meeting? If we're with LSA, which

meets in January, would that be January 2000, or January 2001?
