City Dictionary in the News

Last week the Capital Times picked up City Dictionary's Word of the Day, "People's Republic of Madison." (Click here to see the article.) This is a great term that is very seldom used, but points to a friendly, self-deprecating jab at Madison's left-leaning politics. Another fun one that is referenced in the Capital Times write-up is "X number of miles surrounded by reality." The Capital Times' own blog assures us that Madison is now officially 77 square miles, but I've heard people estimate anywhere from 25 miles to 80 miles for the sake of inserting the local expression into conversation.

Anyway, it's always nice to see City Dictionary stirring up dialog on local language. Many thanks to the Capital Times for spreading the Word of the Day!
