A. L. Burt Company’s Walden

Searching Webster’s for the Modern Diet

This week's post marks number 30 since I started The White Whale, and it's a guest writer, Greg Back, who is an avid writer and teacher. He's also my cousin-in-law. In fact, we were both married in the same church on Spring Hill in Wyalusing. I hope you enjoy his playful look at language and the modern diet.
