Interesting word of the day (From Wordsmith)

February 19, 2010 at 11:43 am (humor)

I subscribe to Wordsmith.Org, and today’s word was bedlam, whose etymology comes from Bethlem Royal Hospital. Bethlem is an assylum. And it’s also very similar to Bethlehem. Coincidence?

Here’s the e-mail in its near-entirety: http://docs.google.com/View?id=dzvhv8v_2068gvt6x6c7.
