What a lovely tribute to Messrs. Safire and Gelsthorpe. Like so many others, I have admired Mr. Safire's writing for years, but I am absolutely delighted to be able to know about Mr. Gelsthorpe and his influence on our culture.

Don't you mean "_A_ mean wordslinger himself"? Or are they interchangeable? I knew what you meant --

@Anonymous: In the "no mean..." construction, "mean" means "small" or "paltry." Compare "no mean feat."
