Default [Dixonary] Rnd 2869 ZABERNISM Reuslts

I am closing early because everybody who submitted has voted. This was
an close round at the top with a few also-rans

Keith Hale and Judy Madnick scored┬* 6 each and by the rolling scores
Keith is our next dealer thus making the real winner┬* to be Judy

ZABERNISM comes from a place; not a person: Zabern is the German name of
a village in Alsace (Saverne in French). The episode which caused the
name to be used this way is similar to what happened to Archimedes 2100
years earlier. In 1912 an excited German subaltern cut down a lame
cobbler who smiled at him.

#3 gained me a D2
