RE: Chicago Botanic

We have the same in psychiatry...those who prefer the word orientated to
oriented. I keep telling people that oreinteering is something you do
with a map and a compass when you're lost, being oriented has to do with
knowing where you are already. Drives me up a wall! :-)

Subject: [CHAT] Chicago Botanic

Meant to pick up on this earlier, Donna. Chicago, Denver, and the U.S.
<br>all have botanic gardens. Everyone else seems to prefer the prolix
<br>"botanical." Reminds me of the health nudniks who prefer
"preventative" <br>to preventive. Like, making it longer and dumber
makes it more <br>important.<br><br><br>Island Jim<br>Southwest
