Editor's Note: As I mentioned to me it is the spirit in which some uses the word that helps determine it's relationship to which o the words you found. I still am not sure if a phony could have integrity but I doubt a hypocrite could.

Cynically, I now know that I can very seldom invoke integrity in my vocabulary. Or is that just because of others? Thank you very much!

Editor's Note: Ever since I read Deep's column I have had the same feeling.

There is a feeling however that eventually the right words will come.

meanwhile I'll continue gathering material for that book I thought would have been complete years ago.

Ahhh! there is always the book!

Editor's Note: It is like a carrot at the end of a stick.

At least it has been giving me a direction to head.

The problem with books is that they are never really "done".

Editor's Note: The problem with anything being 'done' is to specifically define the term.

If I hesitated all the time before using a word nothing would ever be said.

I rely on the common popular opinion of most words to define their usage.

If there is a doubt later then it's dictionary time.

After reading all the synonyms I feel a lot better. Feel quite a bit richer knowing that I have taken the high road. But all that stuff is relative, I guess.

Editor's Note: Now we are talking! Relativity is where it is at

just my opinion of course :=)
