Mr. Comerford's letter in the July 19 edition regarding Tori Marlan's article "Blood Sport" is the finest evidence I've seen yet that access to a thesaurus should be regulated. I've never seen so many seven- to ten-letter words bunched in one paragraph. Someone do Mr. Comerford a favor and confiscate both his dictionary and thesaurus for improper, indecent, obscene, gluttonous and fescennine overuse of a reference book.
