When William Safire delineates the difference between misinformation and disinformation or "distances himself" from clichés, people sit up and take notice. Which is not to say that Safires readers always take the punning pundit at his word: they dont, and hes got the letters to prove it.
Among the entries in Coming to Terms, this all-new collection of Safires "On Language" columns, youll read the repartee of Lexicographic Irregulars great and small. John Haim of New York sets in concrete what properly to call a cement truck, while Charlton Heston challenges an interpretation of Hamlets "to take arms against a sea of troubles" and Gene Shalit passes along his favorite Yogi Berra-ism.
Bringing them all together are dozens of Safires most illuminating and witty columns, from "Right Stuffing" to "Getting Whom." When William Safire comes to terms, theres never a dull moment.
