Also an entry in Longman Register of New Words (Vol. 2, c. 1990) and in Oxford Dictionary of New Words (c. 1991). This strikes me as one of those terms that John Algeo would call a "stunt word" rather than a neologism of some duration. Time will tell! Regards, David K. Barnhart Barnhart[AT SYMBOL GOES HERE]
