The Corner

In Praise of Criticism

Thanks to all who offered “blurds,” as one Cornerite improved my “blord” request for a word that doesn’t exist but should. Suggestions for a word meaning “simultaneously criticism

and praise” included: priticism, craise, complicize, critipliment, critipraise, laudamnate, inadvertiment and “praising with faint damns.” See tomorrow’s column for the winners — assuming my editor is as amused as I. You never know with those guys. And thanks to Cornerites Len Keeler, Kerry Stanley, and Cindy Beaudin for their submissions.
